NYC lost its one its only modular home manufactures at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 2016. Still, modular building is having a moment, especially with the city’s first wave of modular micro-apartments at Carmel Place opening.

But modular may soon mean getting even smaller. Smaller than buildings. Smaller than apartments. We’re talking modular rooms built out of materials like over-sized lego blocks.

A company called EverBlock Systems has created a series of universal multi-colored building blocks that can be used to create a variety of structures that are easy to disassemble and reshape.

“Like the toys of our childhood, which enabled us to express ourselves and realize our vision in physical products, EverBlock was conceived to allow designers, decorators, and inventors everywhere to economically build their dream objects,” the block manufacture, EverBlock Systems, says on its website.”What you construct is limited only by your imagination.”
