Synopsis: This book is conceived as evidence supporting the qualities of dense, urban living, and as a hopeful antidote against sprawl. Necessity and investigation are prerequisites for the design of housing: Total Housing refers to the need to understand that social, environmental, and economic factors affect form, and that living space is a base for our increasingly complex and varied societies. This new survey into multi - family housing focuses on the responses proposed by architects who are dealing with the dynamic and diverse demands of contemporary society. Featuring works by Lacaton - Vassal, BIG, + JDS, Sadar Vuga Arhitekti, Ryue Nishizawa, FOA, SHoP, and many emerging new architects, this volume is not a simple catalog, but rather a studied collection of inventive projects.

Review: WHY ITS DIVINE: 'Total Housing: Alternatives to Urban Sprawl' surveys designs in defense of populated, urban living. The architects featured in this book deal with the demands of contemporary society; their designs reflect the importance of context and the idea that economic as well as social and environmental elements affect design. This book is a learning experience, full of innovative designs and blueprints , as well as colorful images of both finished and potential projects. -- --The Huffington Post

TOTAL HOUSING: ALTERNATIVES TO URBAN SPRAWL packs in new modern collective housing options and supports qualities of dense urban living. Urban planning collections at the college level will welcome this survey of housing design and the need to understand the social influences upon housing design choices. Chapters offer a new survey of multi-family housing and focuses on architects who are handling social demands with new approaches. Color photos and floor plans pack the guide. --California Bookwatch

Even though the collection is fairly Euro-centric, the diversity is great, be it the number of units, project heights (most are mid-rise, but towers and walk-ups are included), and location. Accompanying the book is a Total Housing web page with supplementary videos and interviews. --A Weekly Dose of Architecture
