The Philadelphia Inquirer's article on the Loblolly House adds some historical context:

"Ever since Sears, Roebuck shipped its first house kits across the country 100 years ago, architects have dreamed of perfecting an affordable, prefab house that can be mass-produced. Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Buckminster Fuller, Walter Gropius and Jean Prouve all tried their hands at factory-made houses -- and failed.

'It's the holy grail of modern architecture,' Kieran said. He said he has the problems licked, though."

(The article was also reprinted in the Washington Post: Custom Prefab Home Is at One With Nature and Technology.)
