Integrated living, communal living, living for families, handicap-accessible living – the wide variety of current demands is shaping future concepts in housing which will have to do justice to the needs of our increasingly multi-layered society. The latest in the In Detail series, this volume examines 25 projects ranging from apartments and multi-generational housing to senior centres and residences, with photographs, elevation, floor plans and a brief article on the technical requirements of the work. The examples in this new volume are correspondingly diverse. From the demand for stroller and wheelchair accessible housing, to facilities that accommodate the needs of senior citizens, all the way to the modernisation of existing buildings, the selection of projects offers a panoramic overview. In closing, it provides addresses of information centers and associations, as well as sources of additional information.
