Description

Over three-quarters of the world's population live in cities where the need for affordable urban housing of good design is vital to the quality of urban living. This book looks at a wide variety of solutions to the problem of creating affordable urban housing of good design, showing that understanding the important design principles is a basic requirement of sustainable housing in the future.

The authors, Zhou and Colquhoun, examine the famous argument between P. Berlage and Le Corbusier that focused on open environment and closed environment. Here they discuss the whole range of different housing types, from an international perspective, approaching both 'concave' housing, such courtyard design, and 'convex' housing including tower blocks.
