||This study evolves within the larger context of developing a housing productionprocess that uses new technologies in order to allow industrialization in an innovative way,and so avoiding traditional industrialized processes flaws, such as the lack of housingcustomization and neighborhood diversity. It introduces elements of a methodology toachieve order and diversity in the systematic design of street facades within a modular systemfor housing. In its context both order and diversity refer to the spatial arrangement ofarchitectural elements; order emphasizes repetition, whereas diversity emphasizes variation.
