Product Description


“…interesting insights…” (Inside Housing, Nov 03) “This is an interesting collection of work spanning a large number of countries with contributors and schemes…” (Building Engineer, April 2004)

From the Back Cover

Housing for the people: What opportunities exist for this democratic ideal now that the scope for publicly funded architecture is being curtailed in so many countries by the free market? Who are breaking the boundaries to create innovative housing stock? Are attitudes changing towards what is possible? How are the employment of pre–fabrication techniques, materials and information technologies being harnessed? Or could the new alliances that are being hammered out between designers and housebuilders signal the onset of a new era of design–conscious private mass housing? With contributors writing on six distinct geographical areas –Australia, Japan, The Netherlands, Sweden, the UK and the UK – as well as emergency dwellings, a worldwide perspective is established.
