A bit of Miami architecture innovation news: Cabin Fever, a builder of prefab houses based in Miami’s Little Haiti district that we have previously blogged about, recently announced that it has entered into a partnership with Orlando-based Ed Binkley Design to build its Shelter Series of small detached houses, and possibly duplexes. Cabin Fever’s press release also mentioned that “whether a schoolhouse, medical clinic, or family home, structures that are efficient, affordable, and culturally relevant are desperately needed in developing countries”, and that coincidentally Cabin Fever can “fit the components for as many as six complete structures into a single shipping container”. In 2011, let’s hope that more of the potential benefits of innovative architecture become reality, in Miami and around the world. Happy new year!
