Housing Critical Futures
Series Editor / Executive Editor, Architecture_MPS: Graham Cairns
Housing: Critical Futures is an innovative book series that offers a platform for leading international academics to debate housing and related issues. While the books explore a range of geographically specific concerns, together they investigate the challenges of providing affordable and sustainable housing in a global context.
It is against the background of disparate policy interventions, resistances, design proposals, planning initiatives and community conflicts that surround housing in this multi-faceted global context that this series makes a stand. Reflecting the belief that housing and its social implications are not discipline-specific concerns, this series sets themes that invite cross-disciplinary, creative, and critical thinking from those engaging in research and activism from multiple fields. The aim is to instigate provocative debate, consider problems, and propose potential solutions. To that end, it brings together architects, planners, sociologists, economists, geographers, political activists and housing professionals around a series of themes that manifest themselves differently, in different contexts.
