Aims and Scope
For decades, the Floor Plan Manual Housing has been one of the reference works in architecture. It documents and analyses 165 international residential buildings realized between 1945 and 2017. The 5th revised edition has been extended by 30 new projects.
The focus of the book is on high-quality examples that are exemplary and transferrable and on concepts that are innovative and trendsetting. The systematic presentation of all projects makes it possible for readers to compare and evaluate the floor plans in order to derive inspiration from the ideas and strategies for their own work.
The introductory essays on theory and history have been re-written and updated, and provide a clearly structured overview of residential construction and its development over the last 70 years.
