This housing construction design manual documents and analyses some 130 international residential structures from the last fifty years.
From the standardised floor plans of the 1960s to the more individual concepts of the 1980s and the changed requirements and housing types of recent years, example structures by famous and lesser-known architects from throughout the world showcase the tremendous variety of possible designs.
The categorisation of projects from a town planning perspective is supplemented by the detailed typological description of the relevant housing types.
Every project is presented with its typical floor plans to a scale of 1:200; sections, site plans, and photographs illuminate each buildings structure and situation.
This introductory theoretical and historical essays have been newly written or updated, and offer a structured overview of the residential housing typology and its development.
