Paul Karakusevic, director of Karakusevic Carson Architects, established the practice with the ambition of improving the quality of social housing in London. The focus for the practice is the delivery of successful and sustainable neighbourhoods, mixed-tenure housing and civic buildings that reflect both their unique, local sense of place and the real needs of the communities involved.

Public housing is a form of housing tenure in which the property is usually owned by a government authority , either central or local. Social housing is any rental housing that may be owned and managed by the state , by non-profit organizations , or by a combination of the two, usually with the aim of providing affordable housing.
Social housing is generally rationed [ by whom? Private housing is a form of housing tenure in which the property is owned by a private developer or by non-profit organizations [ citation needed ]. Although the common goal of public housing is to provide affordable housing, the details, terminology, definitions of poverty , and other criteria for allocation vary within different contexts. Social housing had existed sporadically prior to modern developments. The oldest still in use is the 16th century Fuggerei in Augsburg , Bavaria.
The origins of modern municipal housing lie in the dramatic urban population increase caused by the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century. In the large cities of the period, many social commentators, such as Octavia Hill and Charles Booth reported on the squalor, sickness and immorality that arose.
An almost total lack of drainage and sewerage was made worse by the ponds formed by the excavation of brickearth. Pigs and cows in back yards, noxious trades like boiling tripe, melting tallow, or preparing cat's meat, and slaughter houses, dustheaps, and "lakes of putrefying night soil " added to the filth.
Some philanthropists began to provide housing in tenement blocks , and some factory owners built entire villages for their workers, such as Saltaire in and Port Sunlight in It was in , after the report from a Royal Commission in England, that the state first took an interest. This led to the Housing of the Working Classes Act of , which empowered Local Government Boards to shut down unhealthy properties and encouraged them to improve the housing in their areas.
Arthur Morrison wrote the influential A Child of the Jago , an account of the life of a child in the slum, which sparked a public outcry. Construction of the Boundary Estate was begun in by the Metropolitan Board of Works and completed by the then-recently formed London County Council in The success of this project spurred many local councils to embark on similar construction schemes in the early 20th century. The First World War indirectly provided a new impetus, when the poor physical health and condition of many urban recruits to the British Army was noted with alarm.
This led to a campaign known as Homes fit for heroes and in the Government first compelled councils to provide housing, helping them to do so through the provision of subsidies , under the Housing Act The project has been criticized for its placement and quality of the houses.
In Canada, public housing is usually a block of purpose-built subsidized housing operated by a government agency, often simply referred to as community housing, with easier-to-manage townhouses.
Canada, especially Toronto , still maintains large high-rise clustered developments in working-class neighborhoods, a system that has fallen into disfavour in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
However, Toronto Community Housing , the second largest public housing agency in North America, has a variety of buildings and communities ranging from individual houses to townhouse communities and mid-rise and high-rise apartments in both working-class and middle-class neighborhoods that house a significant number of low-income Canadians. Following the decentralisation of public housing to local municipalities, Social Housing Services Corporation SHSC was created in the Province of Ontario in to provide group services for social housing providers public housing, non-profit housing and co-operative housing.
It is a non-profit corporation which provides Ontario housing providers and service managers with bulk purchasing, insurance, investment and information services that add significant value to their operations. Recently, [ when? Revitalization plans for properties such as in the notorious Downtown Eastside of Vancouver , and Regent Park , Lawrence Heights and Alexandra Park in Toronto, aim to provide better accommodations for low-income residents, and connect them to the greater community.
In Toronto, for instance, the aims of the reconstruction plans of Regent Park are to better integrate it into the traditional grid of streets, improve leisure and cultural amenities, and force poor people out of the downtown Toronto. However, the residents of these communities have had little effective input in the plans and have had mixed reactions to the construction.
In , Vancouver , long considered one of the least affordable cities in the world,  changed the definition of social housing to mean rental housing in which a minimum of 30 percent of dwelling units are occupied by households that cannot pay market rents, due to lack of income.
At the end of the Second World War, enriched by US investments and an oil boom , Mexico had its first demographic boom, in which the primary destination for rural immigrants was Mexico City. Mario Pani Darqui , a famous architect at time, was charged to build its first large-scale public housing project.
His later project, the Conjunto Urbano Tlatelolco Nonoalco built in —65, was meant to develop one of the poorest parts of the city, Santiago Tlatelolco , which was becoming a slum. Unfortunately, after a while, instead of giving the residences to the previous residents of Tlatelolco , corruption took place and most of the dwellings were handed to state employees. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, government involvement in housing for the poor was chiefly in the introduction of building standards.
Atlanta, Georgia 's Techwood Homes , dedicated in , were the nation's first public housing project. This also eased concerns of the establishment by eliminating or altering neighborhoods commonly considered a source of disease, and reflected progressive-era sanitation initiatives.
Moreover, public housing, along with the Federal Highway Program , demolished the older, substandard housing of communities of color across the United States. However, the advent of makeshift tent communities during the Great Depression caused concern in the Administration. The Federal public housing program was created by the Act, in which operations were "sustained primarily by tenant rents.
Many Americans associate large, multi-story towers with public housing, but early projects were actually low-rise, though Le Corbusier superblocks caught on before World War II.
A unique US public housing initiative was the development of subsidized middle-class housing during the late New Deal —42 under the auspices of the Mutual Ownership Defense Housing Division of the Federal Works Agency under the direction of Colonel Lawrence Westbrook. These eight projects were purchased by the residents after the Second World War and as of seven of the projects continue to operate as mutual housing corporations owned by their residents.
These projects are among the very few definitive success stories in the history of the US public housing effort. Public housing was only built with the blessing of the local government, and projects were almost never built on suburban greenfields , but through regeneration of older neighborhoods.
The destruction of tenements and eviction of their low-income residents consistently created problems in nearby neighborhoods with "soft" real estate markets.
Houses, apartments or other residential units are usually subsidized on a rent-geared-to-income RGI basis. Some communities have now embraced a mixed income, with both assisted and market rents, when allocating homes as they become available. A significant change in the program took place in , with the passage of the Brooke Amendment.
The federal Housing and Urban Development HUD department's HOPE VI program addressed concerns of distressed properties and blighted superblocks with revitalization and funding projects for the renewal of public housing to decrease its density and allow for tenants with mixed income levels. Other attempts to solve these problems include the  Section 8 Housing Program, which encourages the private sector to construct affordable homes, and subsidized public housing.
This assistance can be "project-based", subsidizing properties, or "tenant-based", which provides tenants with a voucher, accepted by some landlords. More recently, non-single-family units, such as condominiums and townhouses are being built which also fall into this category.
It is popularly called an apartamento English: 'apartment' , whether or not its resident owns the unit or lives it as a renter. Increasingly, however, public housing developments are being built that consist of other than the traditional multi-family dwellings with all exterior grounds consisting of shared outside area, for example, public housing may consist of single family garden apartments units. Finally, a home that is located in neither an urbanizacion nor of a public housing development is said to be located in and to be a part of a barrio.
In this sense, urbanizaciones as well as public housing developments as well as one or several barrios in the popular sense may be located in one of these official geographic areas. The public-owned housing system was established when the Communist Party of China started the planned economy in the s as part of its Great Leap Forward. The system was funded by the central government's budget and were administered and distributed by state-owned enterprises. The occupants of the public housing were usually the employees of the enterprises and their family, who were subject to pay rent at a very low price.
The size and the type of room the households received were dependent on their job title or administrative level. The central government found it difficult to upkeep the public housing due to the low rent it received; the distribution policy that was intended to be " equalitarianism " was actually corrupt. The Chinese government commercialized the housing market after the economic reform started in by Deng Xiaoping.
In the recent years, [ when? The concept of the low-cost rental housing can be traced to a policy statement, [ clarification needed ] but did not truly take off until due to limited funding and administrative problems. The provision of more affordable housing is one of the key components of China's Twelfth Five-year Plan , which targets the construction of 36 million homes by That program's costs will be split between the private and public sector and are estimated at five trillion yuan by China International Capital Corporation.
In Hong Kong, public housing is one of the major housing policies of the government. Nearly half of Hong Kong's 3. In , approximately 31 per cent of Hong Kong households lived in PRH flats while 15 per cent resided in subsidised sale flats of all types. Indonesia has undertaken One Million Houses program for low-income people.
The program has been implementing since to achieve an ambitious target of building 10 million houses. The proportion of the housing is 70 percent for low-income people and 30 percent for non-low-income people. This program is a joint movement between the Central Government, regional governments, real estate developers and the community.
The program is targeted to reach one million housing units annually. During the s, s, and s, the JHC built many danchi in suburban areas to offset the increasing housing demand during the post-World War II economic boom. The rent payment for a danchi is much cheaper than that of an apartment or a mortgage, but for a public danchi the prospective tenant must usually participate in a lottery to be assigned an open apartment. Residents in UR danchi do not have to pay key money or contract renewal fees, making the residences cheaper than comparable housing even if the monthly rents are equivalent.
In Singapore, the public housing program, particularly the planning and development of new public housing and the allocation of rental units and resale of existing ownership units, is managed by the Housing and Development Board.
Day-to-day management of public housing communities has been delegated to Town Councils headed by the local members of parliament. In , According to a discussion paper of the European Commission , in , Current investment in social infrastructure in the EU is estimated at billion euros per year. The minimum infrastructure investment gap in these sectors is estimated at to billion euros, representing a total gap of at least 1. Housing projects in Europe can be found in urban areas , as well as in suburban areas.
Especially in central and eastern Europe. Public funding was planned to be directed primarily on affordable housing and secondly in the education and lifelong learning, health and long-term care sectors. Public housing was an important issue right from the foundation of the Republic of German-Austria in The population was faced with a great deal of uncertainty particularly as regards food and fuel.
This led to a significant number of less affluent people to move to the periphery of towns, often building makeshift homes to be closer to where they could grow food. They were called Siedler 'settlers'.
As the political situation became stabilised with foundation of the First Austrian Republic in September , the Siedler movement started creating formal organizations like the Austrian Association for Settlements and Small Gardens.
Part of their programme was the provision of decent homes for the Viennese working class who made up the core of their supporters. Hence the German word Gemeindebau plural: Gemeindebauten for "municipality building". In Austria, it refers to residential buildings erected by a municipality, usually to provide public housing. These have been an important part of the architecture and culture of Vienna since the s.
Social housing is a responsibility of the regions in Belgium. The regions don't directly own the houses, semi-private social housing corporations do. The government regulates and mostly finances this corporations.
Prefabrication for affordable housing
Price CHF The need for housing has increased significantly during the last decades all over the world. It is felt particularly in countries where the population growth rate is high and the economy is developing fast; but everywhere people are shifting from the countryside to towns, where housing in neighbourhoods often becomes critical. Large projects always face cost- and time-constraints. Local conditions may be variable with respect to the physical, social and economic environment. Thus, minimising cost and time of construction, while maximising quantity and quality of product, may lead to different solutions. Concrete is a material that lends itself well to affordable housing: it is durable, has good thermal inertia, can be used both as structural and finishing material, and is not sensitive to organic attack.
Featuring 24 exemplary projects from across the UK and Europe, it explores new typologies, emerging design approaches and refurbishment strategies that together offer a challenge to housing professionals to rethink how we build and highlights the vital role of low cost housing in the life of our cities. Common to them all however, is the idea that there are and can be alternatives to a purely market-orientated system of provision and it is here, amidst the variety of alternative forms both new and old, that the publication places itself. Due to high demand the publication is now on its second print run. Back to top.

The move to restore urban legibility in housing projects is no bad thing, but the sheer ingenuity of the s surely has something to teach us. Dominic Papa covers these points in a thoughtful interview introducing the section on how urban scale strategies might contribute to housing provision. You may have already requested this item.
Коммандер, - она снова попыталась настоять на своем, - нам нужно поговорить. - Минутку! - отрезал Стратмор, вопросительно глядя на Хейла.

Как только получит денежки, так и улетит. Беккер почувствовал тошноту. Это какая-то глупая шутка.
Простыня на его половине кровати была холодной. Дэвид исчез. Значит, приснилось, подумала Сьюзан и села в кровати.
Он быстро подошел к ним и остановился в нескольких сантиметрах от дрожащего Чатрукьяна.
Молодой охранник положил руку на крышу машины. - Пожалуйста, ваше удостоверение. Сьюзан протянула карточку и приготовилась ждать обычные полминуты.
Цепная мутация, сэр. Я проделал анализ и получил именно такой результат - цепную мутацию. Теперь Сьюзан поняла, почему сотрудник систем безопасности так взволнован. Цепная мутация.
