The latest issue of DASH (Delft Architectural Studies on Housing), a thematic journal devoted to residential design edited by members of TU Delft's Dwelling Chair, focuses on 'Global Housing: Affordable Dwellings for Growing Cities'. With "massive urbanisation" occurring across emerging economies worldwide, there is "an acute need for affordable housing" – the scale of which goes far beyond conventional building production, "requiring complex, politically- and economically-oriented solutions."
With contributions from the likes of Charles Correa, as well as interviews with John Turner and Go West, the issue also includes plan-documentation in projects by PK Das, Constantinos Doxiadis and Hassan Fathy, as well as historical examples from the United Kingdom and North America. It asks: "what does a good home look like? How can new megacities do justice to existing social and economic structures, local production techniques and individual wishes?"
