If you're looking for ways to give back to your community, then this book, the first to profile thirteen projects designed and built by architects and Habitat for Humanity, will help. Detailed plans, sections, and photographs show you how these projects came about, the strategies used by each team to approach the design and construction process, and the obstacles they overcame to realize a successful outcome. The lessons and insights, presented here will aid you, whether you're an architect, architecture student, Habitat affiliate leader, or an affordable housing advocate.

Located all across the United States, these projects represent the full spectrum of Habitat for Humanity affiliates, from large urban affiliates to small rural programs. These cases illustrate a broad range of innovative approaches to energy performance, alternative construction strategies, and responses to site context. And each house demonstrates that design quality need not fall victim to the rigorous imperatives of cost, delivery, and financing.

About the Author:

David Hinson is the head of the School of Architecture, Auburn University, USA 

Justin Miller is an assistant professor at the School of Architecture, Auburn University, USA

Review:

"Designed for Habitat presents potent evidence of the link between design and dignity, particularly in the context of low-income housing. It captures a crucial trifecta of perspectives--Habitat for Humanity leaders, homeowners, and designers. Their powerful, sometimes explosive stories aren't sugarcoated by Hinson and Miller; the pair makes clear that these collaborations present huge challenges for often-opposing cultures, but can yield unprecedented payoffs. With America's housing in a perpetual state of crisis, such partnerships are more important than ever. This highly-instructive, landmark book is an unmatched guide for future collaborations. It communicates so clearly and so convincingly to Habitat and its homeowners that they too deserve good design; indeed, we all do."

John Cary, Author, The Power of Pro Bono; Founder & Editor, PublicInterestDesign.org

"This book is a must read for anyone interested in solving US iniquities in housing because it’s not just about housing. These are stories about both America’s faith in itself and its tireless ingenuity. Hallelujah, amen and hats off to all its contributors!"

Michael Pyatok, FAIA, Principal Pyatok Architects

"Unlike most architecture books, this book goes beyond the pictures to explain how these houses were designed and built, and offers practical lessons for architects and practitioners. It should be required reading for anyone who develops or builds modest, affordable single family houses, as well as for any architect who considers this product unworthy of their talents."

Alan Mallach, The Brookings Institution, Author of A Decent Home: Planning, Building and Preserving Affordable Housing
