Prefab used to be a dirty word, but no longer: architects, most notably Dutch and Spanish architects, are leading the cause of modern prefab building, according to Arch-Vision, a European market research company. A recent international research study of 1,200 architects noted that 88 percent of Dutch and 83 percent of Spanish architects indicate that they can create attractive architectural designs through prefab, with most architects from other surveyed countries in agreement. This is an increase over last year's research results.
