Maybe the newer thing is still to be made. I think this will be the disembark of big industrial corporations on housing to do for homes and buildings what of carts was made to become our present cars.

This faces many practical oppositions, and I think the main one is not the cost, the opposition of the people or that of the architects, ... but that of those that could do it to become true.

I think they estimate that this can't be made without revolutionary change to the world and extraordinary allowance of freedom to the people. We talk somewhat of appliances controlled by computer and integrated to homes, but homes that are of industrial production and movable and longlasting? This sounds like a nightmare for a Napoleonic state willing everyone be at 10.00 am at some public office.
