September 13. 2016 | ISBN-10: 3319401912 | 161 Pages | PDF | 10.37 MB

Authors: Isah, Abubakar Danladi
Provides a methodological framework for policy makers and architects, helping them grasp how their cultural contexts can improve housing design
Offers a guide to sustainable public housing design in culturally sensitive communities in line with the United Nations' sustainable development goals
Includes tips on how communities' mainstream values are ingrained and streamlined with housing configurations in urban settings of cultured communities in developing nations

This book provides readers with two major practical insights. Firstly, on the basis of statistical inquiry it identifies the significance of socio-cultural elements that encourage user-instigated transformation. Secondly, it employs layout pattern analysis to distinguish transformation patterns, hence revealing an unbroken cultural link between residents and their roots. The book also sheds new light on the transformation of public housing in the context of culture-sensitive communities in Northern Nigeria.
The research work is directed towards developing culture-responsive public housing design frameworks that are rooted in the current users' experiences. As a result, a broad portrait of prime design emerges from said experiences. In order to accomplish this goal, the study takes into account both phenomenological and interpretive dimensions. In the process, the cultural factors behind residents' transformations are uncovered.
