New, 19 comments

So much for those urban farms at $150 a square foot. Prefab takes a hit, reports the Los Angeles Times' Christopher Hawthorne: "Green prefab architecture firm Michelle Kaufmann Designs is calling it quits, a victim of the credit crisis and broader woes in the economy. In a letter sent over Memorial Day weekend, Kaufmann told clients the firm would close by the end of this week." Based in Oakland, Kaufmann is known for her green approach to prefab. [LA Times]
