Necessity and investigation are prerequisites for the design of housing: social, environmental and economic factors affect form. This new survey into multi-family housing focuses on the responses proposed by architects who are dealing with the dynamic and diverse demands of contemporary society.
If you're interested you can take a look at the book. We are producing a series of interviews with architects featured in Total Housing. These interviews are exclusively published here to give you a sneak preview and background information about what is in the book.
You can also order the book via our webshop and we will send it to you in no time.
