CAIRO BOOKS's Description
RIBA Book of British Housing Design looks at the design solutions developed
during the 20th and the 21st centuries, and illustrates over 200 of the most
successful projects. It provides an overview of the evolution of housing
development, and includes present day schemes and estate regeneration as well
as special sections on housing in Scotland and Northern Ireland. The
photographs and plans of historic and contemporary projects can be used to show
design approaches to clients, committees and, in the case of regeneration, with
local communities. Looking back into history will indicate which design
approaches have been successful.
This fully updated 2nd edition includes a new chapter on the development of
design concepts and projects built since 1999. It illustrates current trends
that have been developing since the turn of the new century, and emphasises the
concept of creating sustainable communities. The use of colour photographs adds
a new dimension to the first edition in making it possible to appreciate more
readily the materials used in the design of the housing and its environment.
