The Urban Housing Handbook

The handbook provides graphic representations and analysis of 30 urban case studies from around the world. These range from the London town house to apartments in Chicago and New York, taking in other European, South American, North African, and Asian examples. These are extensively illustrated with aerial views, archive material and plans and sections. In each chapter, a housing type is fully explored through a traditional case study and then a more modern example that demonstrates how it has been reinterpreted in a contemporary context.

The book is a vital design and analysis tool for architects, building professionals and students interested in the fabric of our cities. All the graphic material has been redrawn to scale by the authors. In addition to this, contemporary case studies take in a wide range of recent housing projects, including those from: Atelier Bow-Wow, BIG, Morphosis, MVRDV and SANAA.
