- Resolution: 4 Architecture's competition-winning entry for the 2003 Dwell Home Design Invitational helped ignite interest in prefab houses

- The firm's projects are in NC, MA, NY, CT, and WV

Prefabricated housing of high design and quality construction has long been an elusive goal for architects, where industry practices, bureaucratic regulations, and cost have always stood in the way, until now. The New York based firm Resolution: 4 Architecture is revolutionizing prefab housing with their Modern Modular design system. Home designs based on modules of use intended for communal or private spaces are mixed and matched to achieve an infinite number of designs suited to each buyer's site, budget, and lifestyle. Modern Modular, the first book on the critically acclaimed firm, presents fourteen beautifully photographed case studies illustrating each step in their prefab system, from design and fabrication to transportation, siting, and final construction of distinctively modern and surprisingly affordable new homes.


* > Joseph Tanney and Robert Luntz founded Resolution: 4 Architecture in 1991. Their competition-winning entry for a home sponsored by Dwell magazine in 2003 helped ignite renewed interest in prefabrication. They have since completed several more modular homes, all unique in their layouts and configurations yet born of a shared typological system. Their Dwell Home design is now offered through Empyrean Homes. Tanney received his bachelor and master of architecture degrees from Ohio State University. Luntz earned his bachelor of design in architecture degree from the University of Florida and his master of architecture degree from Columbia University. Prior to forming Resolution: 4 Architecture he was with the offices of Perkins & Will, New York; Gwathmey Siegel and Associates Architects; Beyer Blinder Belle, New York; and McCree Architects, Orlando, Florida.
