My article "To Be Continued... Housing, Design, and Self-Determination" is part of the recently published issue 12 of DASH - Delft Architectural Studies on Housing. This issue of DASH is focused on the topic of "Global Housing: Affordable Dwellings for Growing Cities". DASH Global Housing is a special double issue focused on architectural and urban planning models implemented to face the challenge of designing affordable dwellings for growing cities worldwide. DASH explores the tension between the required mass production and solutions tailored to local circumstances. The emphasis is both on the design of the individual dwelling and the city as a whole. What makes a good, compact dwelling? How can new megacities do justice to the existing social and economic structures, to local production methods and the individual wishes of residents? Experts from the Netherlands and abroad shed light on this global phenomenon. Next to my contribution, this issue includes articles by Dick van Gameren, Tom Avermaete and Helen Gyger and interviews with Charles Correa and Go West.
