Social housing is key to any community's well being. Often though, adequacy and appropriateness are not always considered alongside the cultural norms of the target community.
This book offers some useful thoughts on how vulnerable communities could identify ways and means of preparing comprehensively towards ensuring that the planning and design of their social housing takes into consideration values and ways of life of its community.
An enabling environment that is mediated by the community's agency, knowledge and artistry and skills in building and construction ought to take precedence over the more touted economies of scale invariably brought about by emerging technologies, if at all these mass creations will have the communities endorsement, ownership and most important of all, the sense of pride and duty of care. A well cared for built environment is always a reflection of a happy and satified people.Its general health and prosperity is ensured as a result.
