Abstract

The scarcity of low-cost housing is a serious national problem in both developed and developing countries and as such lends itself to cross-national and cross-cultural examination. This illustrated monograph, an output of the East-West Center's Low-Cost Housing Project, focuses on technological innovations in low-cost housing, with consideration given to the need to: reduce the cost of housing units, create jobs in the construction materials and building industries, consider the attitudes of the people concerned, and provide complementary low-cost water supply and waste disposal system. The book is divided into two parts. The first part examines low-cost housing policy, financing, and technologies in a variety of socioeconomic settings in the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Korea, and Hawaii. The second part discusses several important topics in the realm of low-cost housing: construction materials; criteria for seismic design of unreinforced masonry and adobe; the potential contribution of higher education to providing low-cost housing; and low-cost housing information. A subject index is included.
