Jul 2014
By Peter G. Rowe, Har Ye Kan


This book combines the architectural and urban scales to demonstrate that urban intensity determines the success of housing. The authors provide a typology of housing according to the ways in which diversity and density are created. Comparisons with historical models and critical appraisals based on the authors' unique standing give information on the pros and cons of major types of housing, their pitfalls and successful examples.
