25 Years of Habitat Awards Yield Lessons
By: BSHF
27 November 2011
 

The last twenty-five years have seen remarkable economic, social, political and climatic changes. Building and Social Housing Foundation (England) has issued its jubilee publication reflecting on those developments through its World Habitat Awards. Established in 1986, the Awards have honored the problem-solving innovations of professionals and communities to improve their living conditions in the face of the great challenges of our age. Rapid urbanization, an increasing and ageing population, displacement, climate change, political change and globalization have accompanied the 262 cases recorded in this anniversary volume. The cases identified through the Awards over the last quarter century testify to how these forces affect how and where people live across our planet and the successful responses to these challenges. They show how people, communities and governments can work together for a better life.

This commemorative publication showcases a range of innovative and sustainable housing solutions from around the world as BSHF celebrates the 25th anniversary of the World Habitat Awards. The publication features:

· An analysis of the trends in housing solutions presented over the last 25 years

· Case studies showcasing award-winning practices;

· Details of knowledge and good practice transfer activities carried out by BSHF and its partners, including lessons learned;

· A searchable index of previous and current winners and finalists of the Awards.
