Today's Sustainable Pre-fab: A Conversation with Sheri Koones

Podcast: 2010/6/10 – 18:31

Presenter: Sheri Koones

In this podcast we discuss residential prefab with Sheri Koones, the author of numerous books on home remodeling and residential prefabrication.

Her newest book takes readers from coast to coast with individual case studies examining the current state of sustainable residential prefabrication, from Modernist urban infill lots to expansive, traditional mountainside cabins. Her building case studies showcase lean, mean, experimental sustainable performance machines that revolutionize buildings' role in the energy marketplace, as well as the most entrenched and historicist architectural conventions given a refreshing sheen of green design. Throughout all of Koones work, she explores pre-fabrication as the definitive paradigm for the commercial mainstreaming of sustainable building.
