Project Info

The thermoplastic housing building technology is a research project at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in collaboration with the Singapore University of Technology and Design with sponsorship from the SUTD-MIT International Design Centre. Its motivation is to rethink the production of affordable housing using automated CAD/CAM design, analysis and fabrication methods, advanced composite construction materials and precision robotic manufacturing processes. It suggests a radical approach to pre-fabricated and post-modular housing design by shifting the underling paradigm from industrial standardization to mass customization.
