But Rogers' method is different. He is pioneernig a new generation of flatpack prefab housing.
The architect is the subject of a retrospective at London's Royal Academy, and as part of an expansive show, the Academy is highlighting his work with prefab. Curators invited Rogers and his team to build a three story prefab housing units, all of which typically takes less than 24 hours to construct.
