Students and graduates of Taliesin, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, have created an energy efficient prefab home prototype they call Mod.Fab. This great looking one-bedroom, 600 square foot prefab is designed for sustainable desert living.
The Mod.Fab can tap into the local power grid or function “unplugged” by relying on low-consumption fixtures, rainwater harvesting, graywater re-use, natural ventilation, solar orientation, and photovoltaics to reduce energy and water use.
