    DescriptionHome looks at the dwelling as the basic element of our cities, from the house to the apartment building. The book concludes with a discussion of what planning and housing models should be considered as a matter of urgency by those responsible for planning our cities. Home raises many questions about the future of our cities - What will be the cultural impact of growth and migration? Will we continue to want to live in communities that satisfy the social aspirations of the individual and family? Will ecological issues such as global warming, and other environmental concerns really direct planning and thinking? How will this change the planning of our cities and our housing? In what form will we house the future population of Australia? This fascinating book explores these questions and more, in the process hopefully triggering debate among the broader community about the future of our cities and housing.
