The Changing Image of Affordable Housing: Design, Gentrification and Community in Canada and Europe by Ulduz Maschaykh

This book examines the liveability and affordability of twenty-first-century residential architecture. Focussing on the architects' and communities' commitment to these housing programmes, as well as that of the private building sector, it stresses the importance of the context of the neighbourhoods in which they are placed, which are either in the process of urban transition or already gentrified. In doing so, the book shows how, and to what extent, twenty-first-century dwelling architecture developments can help to create an integrated sense of community, diminish social and demographic exclusions in a neighbourhood and incorporate people's desires as to what their buildings should look like.

Very interesting and exciting book. It catches the spirit of contemporary architectural developments in British Columbia. But the most interesting part was the chapter on red vienna.
