This book presents 25 international housing schemes that draw on traditional vernacular principles whilst taking into account modern day materials, methods and financial or energy requirements. The aim is to show how, despite mass housing needs, we can design quality modern schemes that ‘fit’ their surroundings and generate a sense of place, community and regional identity – rather than the poor quality, identikit housing currently seen wherever you are in the UK.
Part 1: View on the Vernacular Part 2: UK Case Studies Part 3: European Case Studies Part 4: ROW Case Studies Part 5: Co-housing Conclusion
