Internationally acclaimed architect, Avi Friedman recounts the genesis and development of his innovative project, the Grow Home. Like the auto industry's approach to the economy car, Friedman's Grow Home gives people what they need in a house at an affordable price - a quality product that allows both the perimeter and interior of a house to be expanded and changed to fit the space needs and budget of its owners. Frills are extra. In this illustrated guide, Friedman describes the conception of these modest (14" x 36") homes. He details their construction for prospective owners, builders, and architects and shows how the design has been adapted for prefabrication to meet the needs of the developing world. The "Grow Home" reveals the development and history of a concept that revolutionizes the home and building industry, has been translated into over 10,000 housing units, and has received, among many accolades, the United Nations World Habitat Award. A new preface to the paperback edition assesses the impact and development of the Grow Home since the first units were built in the 1990s.
