During Postopolis! LA we invited a group of architects from Los Angeles to be interviewed by us, in front of a live audience. This turned out to be very interesting, as the attendants got the chance to do their own questions.
One of these architects was Whitney Sander, principal at Sander Architects. Why did I choose him? Well, just take a look at his projects recently featured at AD: Residence for a Briard, Residence for a Sculptor and the Tree House. These projects have one thing in common besides being good projects (personally, I love the Tree House), and that is the use of prefab components.
A big part of the conversation revolved around his Hybrid Houses “Part prefab, all custom™”, on which Whitney has proved that prefab is not just a fad, but a very good business… specially when clients see the final costs.
And remember, you need to know how to hold a Martini.
As usual, my words tend to stretch this… just go an watch the interview.
Soon, more interviews!
