The modernist movement ushered in a new way of thinking about space, building materials, and construction methods alike. Many prominent architects began designing homes for prefabrication in the early to mid-1900s, heralding the efficient methodology as the way of the future.

Today, many advanced countries have embraced offsite construction as the preferred method of homebuilding. Though adoption has lagged in much of the United States, California’s affinity for forward thinking and modern architecture has fueled both consumer demand and industry innovation.

Southern California-based Plant Prefab, founded in 2016 as an offshoot of the award-winning residential design studio LivingHomes, is advancing an evolved form of modern homebuilding befitting of its roots. The company’s first home was designed by Ray Kappe, FAIA, and the two-story, 2,500-square-foot prefabricated dwelling was assembled in just eight hours.

Join Plant Prefab Founder & CEO Steve Glenn to explore the intersection of modern design and modern home building, and learn how great home design is now more accessible, more attainable, and decidedly more sustainable than ever before.

Attendees are also welcomed to experience Plant’s latest innovation in homebuilding technology in its LivingHome 10 accessory dwelling unit (ADU), open for tours at CAMP.
