An Interview with CEO Brian Gaudio, CEO of Module
The Pittsburgh-based startup, Module, is redesigning homeownership to be more sustainable and accessible in the 21st century. Their concept disrupts the typical approach of over-building and over-buying in favour of a “pay-as-you-go” entry point to homeownership.
A Module demo expandable housing system unit, built in partnership with Comcast-Xfinity Home.
Brian Gaudio is CEO and one of the company’s co-founders, who trained as an architect and worked in affordable housing. Gaudio explains that he founded Module in an attempt to answer the question, “How do we make good design and quality housing attainable for all?”
Unlike many other industries, housing is inextricably linked to the land it sits on, physically and legally limiting the amount of movement a company can make away from traditional approaches to housing.

About the book: 176 pages, A4 portrait, softcover collection of interviews, design concepts, essays and case studies backed up with premium color high resolution images, on white, uncoated glossy paper.

ARCHHIVE is a print publication expanding on the ideas presented by
Bee Breeders Architecture Competition Organisers.
Bee Breeders is a generator of new ideas, conceived by a worldwide
think tank, for tackling challenging design issues. It often works with
civic, industry, or government partners to initiate its competitions, some
of which are conceptual while others are intended to be built.
ARCHHIVE aims to bring together architects with startups,
entrepreneurs, developers, and problem-solving organizations which tackle these same global issues, often in ways other than building. ARCHHIVE merges the wealth of Bee Breeders’ novel architectural
design proposals, with complementary ideas in entrepreneurship,
policy, and technology.
