RESOLUTION: 4 ARCHITECTURE is an internationally published and highly acclaimed full-service architecture firm.
Founded in 1990 by Joseph Tanney and Robert Luntz, RESOLUTION: 4 ARCHITECTURE (RES4) is recognized for reigniting the discipline’s pursuit of prefabrication with their development of THE MODERN MODULAR, a systematic design methodology that leverages existing prefabrication methods to produce custom modern homes, specific to each client and site.
In 2003, RES4 won an international design competition for a modern prefabricated home: The Dwell Home. It was noted by the Washington Post as the “highest profile modern prefabricated home in America,” and is considered the “Holy Grail” for modern prefab enthusiasts by the Wall Street Journal. The Dwell Home reignited enthusiasm for the promise of prefab in America and abroad.
In addition to having been profiled in newspapers nationwide, RES4’s work has been featured in architectural journals such as Architecture, Architectural Record, Architectural Digest, Architectural Review, Residential Architect, Domus, LARCA, and Interni; design magazines such as Wallpaper, Metropolitan Home, House and Garden, Azure, Interior Design, and Dwell; popular magazines, such as Time, Newsweek, WIRED, and Food and Wine; and media such as CNN, HGTV, DIY, NPR, Nightline, The Travel Channel, and The CBS Morning News.
In 2013, Princeton Architectural Press published Modern Modular: The Prefab Houses of Resolution: 4 Architecture, featuring a select number of projects built over ten years of research and development.
RES4’s work has been exhibited in various museums, including the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, and MoMA in New York City.
In addition to being awarded multiple AIA Design Awards for various projects, THE MODERN MODULAR has received an American Architecture Award, a National AIA Housing Award for Concepts in Innovative Housing, and an Honor Award for Housing Design Research from the Boston Society of Architects and the AIA New York Chapter.
RESOLUTION: 4 ARCHITECTURE is considered one of the most prolific prefab architects practicing today, not only impacting advances within the profession, but also academic research into new methods of integrated design and prefabrication.
