Rome may not have been built in a day, but architect Richard Rogers' prefab Homeshell house was.

According to his website, his practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners constructed the three and a half story building as part of London's Royal Academy of Art's Richard Rogers RA: Inside Out exhibit honoring the architect. Surprisingly, it took them less than 24 hours to assemble the entire structure.

According to Curbed, the Homeshell was used in back in 2007 in Oxley Woods, Roger's sustainable housing development. Since then, the team has made it "even more energy efficient, sustainable and flexible," says the website. The exhibit is being held until October 13, 2013.
