THE COMPLETE EDITION OF THE WOHNUNGSFRAGE PUBLICATION SERIES. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 11 volume set. ISBN 9783959050562 In English.
Publisher's description: How do we create affordable housing today? Who are today's new clients? What new answers can be found to the age-old housing questions? Housing constitutes the rooms, neighborhoods and streets of our daily lives, but a growing number of people are finding it increasingly difficult to access affordable housing on their own terms. Increasingly reduced to a real estate problem, housing issues have been dissociated from architecture, and a notable absence of alternative social actors is painfully apparent. Part of the HKW project Wohnungsfrage (The Housing Question), this investigates the fraught relationship between housing, architecture, and social reality, extending and documenting the exhibition of 1:1 experimental housing models, case studies and artistic works. Consisting of 11 books examining options for self-determined, social and affordable housing, the series presents key historical works with new commentaries, contemporary case studies from around the world, and proposals by an international group of participating activists, architects and artists concerned with urban policy issues.
