'Prefabulous World' is a new stream of architecture books based on sustainability and green building. As sustainability becomes a greater concern across all fields, advances in materials, technology and design mean aesthetics are no longer sacrificed for a reduced carbon footprint.

Just because Earth Day has gone and passed doesn't mean we should stop being conscious of our potentially harmful lifestyle choices. Sheri Koones illustrates the stunning architectural capability of prefabricated materials in homes and around the world.

The book seeks to both educate on green building and dispel the idea that utilizing prefabricated building materials makes for an uninspired, drab home. The ecological benefits of prefabricated building materials are wide reaching with reductions in fuel usage and construction waste and improving energy efficiency from a green building perspective.
