MOD X Japan

May 25-28, 2020

MOD X Japan 2020 will continue the dialogue between the MOD X network and the Japanese offsite industry through an intensive week-long immersion into the one of the most mature industrial ecologies in the world. Follow and expanding upon the MOD X Japan 2019 format, participants will engage in factory tours, construction site visits as well as participate in a symposium at the University of Tokyo.

Last year, tour participants included representatives of Lindbacks Bygg, Katerra, Google X, Marriott and many other leaders in the offsite industry. Following on the important lesson that what you see and whom you see it with is of equal importance, we are happy to confirm that Connect Homes, DMD Modular as well as Katerra, will be participating in the tour.
