'easy-to-read and provocative . . . valuable to a wide and diverse audience of general readers, design students, practitioners, and academics . . . Davies achieves such broad appeal by cleverly packaging two narratives into one book. His polemic on modern architecture is embedded inside of a competent short history of western architects' experimentations with prefabricated single family homes.' --Design Issues
'The Prefabricated Home is a rare thing indeed - an academic but accessible architectural history that's crystal clear about where architects should be paying more attention if they are to continue to be central to building design and offsite methods. . . a revealing, jargon-free and instructive book' --Offsite Construction magazine
