Item description for Living Plans: New concepts for advanced housing by Klaus-Peter Gast...

Over the past two decades international housing has undergone a radical transformation from standardised systems and well-defined styles to unconventional, individual solutions in which the floor plan and spatial concept have assumed a key defining role and influence on the archtectonic design.

In Living Plans Klaus-Peter Gast introduces, classifies and analyses concepts, functions, strategies and solutions for a variety of types from classical single-family housing through luxury villas to high-density terraced or town houses and cost-optimised elementary apartment housing, addressing the issues of space economy and counteracting urban sprawl. 100 ground-breaking built examples, documented in numerous floor plans and drawings produced exclusively for this book, make Living Plans an indispensable reference work on modern housing.
