As cities expand and populations swell, the task of reimagining and constructing domestic spaces only increases in its urgency. First published in Dutch in 2008, and now available in an expanded English edition that includes 20 new projects, Housing Design: A Manualis a critically acclaimed guidebook to the current state of housing design, from stacked residential structures to villas. Authored by the architectural theorist Bernard Leupen and the editor and architect Harald Mooij, it combines text, blueprints and photographs for individual buildings to provide a clear analysis of the basic organization of private dwelling space in the twenty-first century--from construction materials to the relation of the building to the larger urban environment. Supporting structure, scenography and service functions are all dealt with in turn; the manual pays considerable attention to the relationship between the domestic floor plan, space and how it is experienced. Already a classic, indispensable reference for students, lecturers and professionals in the field of residential construction, Housing Design ranges from large-scale tabula rasa plans to the infill of a gap in an urban elevation, offering the tools necessary to analyze and develop all facets of its subject.
