Publisher's description: Democratic Architecture offers viable & affordable solutions to our country's ongoing housing problems. The book deals with tough urban problems and raises questions not just about housing policy, but about larger political and ethical issues as well. It provides a critique of the various approaches to post-war housing and then puts forth a number of innovative solutions to the problem. Many of the proposals are practical designs for low- and lower-middle-income housing, with an emphasis on increasing opportunities for home ownership. They include a variety of detached homes, multiunit buildings, and some alternative types of housing for people whose lifestyles diverge from the mainstream.
