This book offers a critical review of recent housing research and policy, and architectural theory and practice. It distinguishes between housing (economic and physical commodities), dwelling processes (related to the design, construction and then the ongoing personalization of residential environments) and homes, the meaning and usage of which can be understood in terms of a range of architectural, cultural, social and psychological variables, which need to be examined in terms of an historical perspective. By discussing a broad span of theoretical and methodological issues, each chapter contributes to a more comprehensive understanding of domestic architecture than has currently been presented in any one book. These issues are discussed and illustrated by reference to a wide range of theory research and practice from diverse disciplines, as well as to the author's studies over many years and in several countries. This book will be of interest to researchers, teachers and students of the built environment and to professional practitioners, in architecture, housing administration, environmental psychology and urban studies.
