Houses in Motion: The Genesis, History and Development of the Portable Building

Wiley, 1995/05/26 - 145 ページ
This study explores the design of portable, transportable, demountable and temporary buildings. Using numerous examples - indigenous tents, Buckminster Fuller's Whichita House and Nicholas Grimshaw's British Pavilion for Expo '92 - the author looks at the development of these buildings from prehistoric to present day. He investigates the current design criteria for effective, economic portable buildings and examines the ecological advantages of this recyclable genre. He then compares the current commercially available products with the work of innovative designers such as Nick Grimshaw, Richard Hordem, Jan Kaplicky and Renzo Piano and examines the philosophical and technological issues raised by these designers' work and other more experimental and futuristic prototypes.
