The 20 housing projects collected here share in common a concern for such matters as densification, energy conservation, the use of local materials, flexibility of programmes, and the legacy of the European tradition of social commitment. Drawn from several decades of practice, this volume features works from Baumschlager & Eberle, Brendeland & Kristoffersen, DKV Architecten, MVRDV, Nieto & Sobejano, Ofis Arhitekti and Álvaro Siza. Accompanied by colour photographs, plans, details, and sketches.
