U-Build is a simple modular construction system designed by architectural practice Studio Bark, which aims to transform the way people think about buildings and the way they are built. The system encourages individuals and communities to self-build, simplifying the construction process and enabling anyone to participate. The system relies solely on a flat-pack kit made from timber parts, and was developed from a desire to make construction affordable for the public. Components can be quickly slotted together like puzzle pieces to assemble a building frame, and easily dismantled, recycled or reused at the end of the building’s life. This innovative system is currently receiving a lot of media buzz after being featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs: The Street.
