Abstract

The exploration of Dynamic Modular Housing provides new ways to create homes, with a process of compartmentalizing individual rooms into separate modules that can interchange, move, or be relocated through out the home. This compartmentalization process allows homes to even be relocated to new locations. The concepts of modularity and organized systems help to inform and rationalize the modules. The purpose through prototyping models illustrates the need for this dynamic modular system. Modeling the modules illuminated the problems in design. I found that the only private module or rather private space you needed in a home was the bathroom and bedroom. With this finding it allowed more freedom for open floor plan programing of the space.
