Modern prefab is enjoying a moment in the sun, and I’m all for it. Good design at a reasonable price and building in a way that mostly does not harm the environment is the way I’d like to live. As I’m such a huge fan of modern prefab, imagine my delight when I discovered the African prefab. The brainchild of French-born Eric Bigot, who has worked in areas as far-reaching as the Ministry of Housing in Zambia, to the high-rises of New York City, it is called ZenKaya. The name comes from wordplay: “Zen because it is a trouble free experience and Kaya means home in vernacular South African language, where the concept was first sketched”, according to the Zenkaya website.
