Description

What is needed to create a home and how much does it cost to do it in style? This volume pursues the answer to this question by presenting around 60 projects from around the globe. Unconventional building methods and forms are combined to create unusual structures that suit a limited budget and are of good value, compared with other similarly-sized structures in the same country. Next to starter homes and minimal houses, emergency accommodation represents a very particular group of buildings, which, quickly and inexpensively erected, bear distinct similarities to and can even offer numerous intelligent ideas for ordinary house construction. The following are from the contents: Cork House in Esposende, Portugal (Arquitectos Anonimos); Low Cost Housing, Silvertown, London, UK (Niall McLaughlin Architects); Sylvianrinne Residential Area, Oulu, Finland (UKI Arkkitehdit); Emergency housing from PET bottles (Instant Architects); and, DH1 Disaster House (Gregg Fleishman).
