Sustainable, Affordable, Prefab
“Sustainable, Affordable Housing: Is It Possible?” was a program of the Virginia Festival of the Book which was held in the Charlottesville City Council Chambers. It was co-sponsored by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville.
John Quale talked about creating affordable and environmentally sustainable prefabricated housing and discussed how it could be used to improve the housing and environmental problems in the U.S. He focused on the ecoMOD project, and its sister initiative, the ecoREMOD project, which he initiated and directs. Professor Quale used some slides in his presentation and he also responded to questions from members of the audience.
