ID8 Nation: Seattle’s Manufacturing Entrepreneurs

On 05, Nov 2013 | In Press | By methodhj

Think of a Seattle company. If you’re under age 50 you probably thought of Amazon, Microsoft or Starbucks; if you’re older you might have come up with Boeing.

Architects have long envisioned housing prefabrication as a means to improve design and reduce costs. Frank Lloyd Wright designed his American System-Built homes, seven models of modest houses using precut materials intended to be affordable, between 1912 and 1916; his Usonian houses, about 60 middle-income, L-shaped single-story houses without basements or attics and using simplified construction techniques, in the 1930s; and his mobile home in 1955. Stimulated by Bauhaus thinking, architects thought prefabs were the ideal way to rationalize the building process, achieve economies of scale, and bring good design to the masses.

The homes are all built to qualify for LEED–Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design–certification, he says, and homeowners can submit the paperwork to have their homes officially LEED certified.
