Mass Fallacy: Mass Customization, touted as the savior set to deliver architecture from the limitations of mass production comes with it a new set of problems that must be addressed. When all parts of the whole become unique they require a level of attention during assembly and information/material management not necessary in a repetitive system. The benefit of the repetitive system is that assembly may be done quickly as less time is devoted to figuring the specifics of the unit; the case is often such that the time spent finding the answer to one question may be applied in a series. This project seeks to establish a similar level of efficiency in mass customization that takes advantage of digital fabrication and parametric systems in aid of the design without overpowering it.
