Order and diversity within a modular system for housing

Abstract: This study evolves within the larger context of developing a housing production process that uses new technologies in order to allow industrialization in an innovative way, and so avoiding traditional industrialized processes flaws, such as the lack of housing customization and neighborhood diversity. It introduces elements of a methodology to achieve order and diversity in the systematic design of street facades within a modular system for housing. In its context both order and diversity refer to the spatial arrangement of architectural elements; order emphasizes repetition, whereas diversity emphasizes variation.
