    UNM School of Architecture & Planning Faculty receives R+D Award for ecoMOD Home Design

    Featured in the  Journal of the American Institute of Architects


    The Path to Designing ecoMOD, an Affordable and Energy-Efficient Housing Module

    "Modular, affordable, and high-performing. This was the criteria that John Quale, Assoc. AIA, then an associate professor of architecture at the University of Virginia (UVa), set out to achieve with his prefabricated housing unit ecoMOD. The idea caught the attention of ARCHITECT’s 2013 R+D Awards jury, which lauded ecoMOD’s potential to provide sustainable housing and employment opportunities in economically depressed communities."
