’This unique study of inclusive affordable housing strategies highlights the important role architecture plays in giving people from a broad range of backgrounds a sense of identity and belonging in housing those on the margins. Contemporary examples from Germany, Austria, and western Canada identify issues such as heritage preservation, design, class, and gentrification, making this book a clear argument for mixed use, mixed income housing communities. It is a useful resource for architects, planners, non-profit housing groups, municipalities, policy makers, and others involved in affordable housing.’ Emma Cubitt, Associate at Invizij Architects in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
