This project aims to prove that, for high-rise buildings, prefabricated modular systems can be used. This would allow for greater flexibility of design in a prefabricated modular framework and to construct a structural judgement process that can be used for the construction of a prefabricated high-rise reusable modular building with a personalized geometry.
