This week, the American Institute of Architects announced the recipients of its Small Project Awards 2008. Winners include Abod, envisioned as a low-cost, prefabricated solution to South Africa’s housing shortage by BSB Designs. Each home packs flat and can be assembled by four people with a screwdriver and awl (both tools are shipped with the structure). Buyers can add multiple features on to the original 10x12 foot structure, including a kitchen, bathroom, window-walls, and closets. The lightweight steel framework and corrugated walls can be easily disassembled and transported. Though the prototype's components are currently made in the U.S., BSC Designs is negotiating local production with South African manufacturers. The projected cost is $1500 a piece.
