“The only constant is change. This is true in our personal lives – and even more so in our working environments.” – USM In times of growing issues like sustainability and rapid densification of global cities, modular architecture could form a much needed solution for pressing questions. A modular design has the big advantage of being able to adapt to changing circumstances, making the still prevalent choice for complete demolition and rebuild absolute. A modular design could grow along with the office or family and change its function when necessary.

USM challenges designers to push the USM Haller Configurator to the edges of its flexibility.

Step 3: Export to Photoshop
Export the Configurator designs and photoshop the three different configurations into the one chosen interior.

Step 4: Publish on Archello
Publish your project on Archello and place the three design images in one project publication. Add the tag: “USMFlexibleModularInteriors” (without the “”).
