With this comparatlve analysis of

Latin American housing projects of sodal interest we want to stress an integral vision of the housing probIem. This is to say, we think that every approach to the housing problematic needs to consIder the specifIc local and regional4eterminants in the context of the structural elements, both at macro and micro level, that condltlonate and . reproduce the miserable condItions of the habitat of large majorltles.
In part I we present some papers which enter into polItIcaI, technological, typological and fadlltlary issues. Part 11 consists ofthe presentation and analysis of 19 housing projects in 10 countries. We have deveioped a method of comparison that regards the types of solution on urban, dwelling and organization level as weil as quantltative aspects of the provision and the use of land and services.
