Summary Across Europe a new generation of practices are transforming social housing. Responding to continued high demand, changing clients and new funding methods, architects are once again addressing how homes are delivered at scale, achieving high standards of design and a new focus on city making. Bringing together 24 exemplar case studies and featuring a range of interviews and testimonies, this book explores the best new housing at a pivotal time for the sector. Considering shifting definitions of tenure and featuring a variety of typologies and emerging themes, the projects together offer a challenge to housing professionals to rethink how we build and highlight the vital role of housing in the life of our cities
