Over fifty years ago, in the early 1960’s, the world’s largest aluminum producer decided that it was about time the housing market had a competitive aluminum house suitable to satisfy the needs of the low medium class. To that effect, a small group of men was given the assignment to develop a series of house prototypes that could be mass produced in the same manner as the car in the automobile industry was tooled up to take advantage of standardization and repetition.
After a process of trial and error, the team was able to create a series of modular designs where the typical panels were interchangeable to generate industrialized housing prototypes at low and competitive prices. This is the story of the experimental aluminum house.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
