The Taliesin Mod.Fab is an example of simple, elegant, and sustainable living in the desert.
Designed and built in 2009, by a diverse team of students from the Frank Lloyd Wright school of Architecture, the one-bedroom, 55 sqm prototype residence relies on panelized construction (SIP’s) to allow for speed and economy on site or in a factory. It can be connected to utilities or be “unplugged,” relying on low-consumption fixtures, rainwater harvesting, greywater re-use, natural ventilation, solar orientation, and photovoltaics to reduce energy and water use. The structure is dimensioned and engineered to be transportable via roadway.
