The intensive industrialisation of residential architecture of the 1960s, with its repetitive montage of pre-fabricated elements, led to aesthetically impoverished living environments. Technical solutions prevailed over architectural vision. But the repetition principle contains an architectural potential that architects – then as now – challenge far too rarely. This despite the fact that today’s sophisticated production apparatus, based on IT and high-tech manufacturing processes, does have a potential for more user-focused and individualised architecture.

The book articulates and discusses new perceptions of montage architecture and suggests what it will take to realise the architectural potential of neo-industrialisation. One of the outlined conditions is a different view of what it means to create architecture, of the architect’s design process and his or her role in construction.
