Although the concept of mass customization has been
implemented in the computer, clothing, and
automobile industries, it has not been fully
integrated in architecture, especially in the
housing industry which is more directly related to
personal life style. One of the arguments in this
book focuses on the current implementation that is
not fully functional to address the consumer’s needs
by selecting the product’s appearance only. The book
presents the possibilities of customizing modular
houses by internet and architectural programming
methods. A prototype advisory system has been
developed to facilitate the non-architectural
trained clients to select the appropriate design
schemes and components based on their own
preference. Besides that, the proposed workflow
adopts Building Information Modeling (BIM)
applications as the design collaboration platform in
the building delivery process. The findings of this
research provide an open-ended framework and useful
reference to professionals in AEC industries and
architectural research fields, or anyone else who
may be considering utilizing online feedback loops
for the participatory design approach.
