The urgency of the need for better homes, built with less waste of human effort, is recognized universally. The best way to meet that need is through the natural forces of evolution: through improvement in the physical technique of providing shelter, and the broad cooperative use of that technique by all concerns. This book suggests the cubical modular method as an improvement in such technique. It aims to analyze house structure, to state fully the terms of this important and pressing problem of our times, and to present a logical solution in the redesign of human shelter. This is the third volume of the Evolving House trilogy; the first volume traced the development of housing from caves to modern times, and the second volume analyzed the economics of shelter.
