Housing for All
The 440-page volume is furthermore complemented by ten concepts of affordable housing that asserted themselves in the second phase of the "Housing for All" competition. For this competition Frankfurt am Main's Department for Planning and Construction joined ranks with the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (German Architecture Museum) and the ABG Frankfurt Holding. Renowned architecture bureaus from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and France were chosen from the entries and asked to provide concepts for the development of construction sites in Frankfurt's Hilgenfeld district. Their contributions provide new and innovative impulses for the discourse on affordable housing that will influence projects far beyond this specific German city.
The competition "Housing for All" sees itself as a procedural model for the creation of high-quality affordable housing on the Hilgenfeld construction site of north-west Frankfurt. In the first phase of the competition more than 130 residential buildings from the past four years were submitted that adhere to this principle of providing affordable housing. The funding of 40 per cent of the residential units on the Hilgenfeld site will be publicly subsidised, the remaining privately funded rental housing will be offered at reduced rates.
The design concepts for the Hilgenfeld that were chosen in the second phase of the competition will go on show at the German Architecture Museum in Frankfurt during the exhibition "Housing for All: building 1:1", which runs from April 13 to June 23, 2019.

Flying Panels. How Concrete Panels Changed the World
During the second half of the twentieth century countless concrete panels sailed through the skies: not only physically from factory to construction site, or from country to country, but also figuratively. The flying concrete panel could be found all over the world in countless pictures, on posters, in cartoons and movies and even as toys or theatre and opera sets. Their symbolism made them an emblem for the promise of
Mass Housing in the Socialist City. Heritage, Values, and Perspectives
Prefabricated mass housing in cities from formerly socialist countries represents an enormous volume of residential housing today and is therefore an important tool for the future urban development within these cities. But transformation of these districts is needed due to the functional, societal, and technical challenges that they face. How can these - sometimes gigantic - structures from the 1960s and 70s be adapted to today's needs? How can a
Architectural Guide Moon
Mankind first reached the moon on July 21, 1969. This celestial body had always been a place of longing for earth's inhabitants but this date really set things in motion. Luna, Ranger and Apollo - these and all of the other missions that followed contributed to the fact that we can now seriously consider settling on the moon - and in a manner that is quite different from the
More Releases for Housing
Cost-effective Models for the Future Affordable housing is currently in short supply. In many European cities prices in the residential market are literally going through the roof and there is an acute need for action: as much affordable housing must be provided as quickly as possible. Yet how can costs be reduced without restricting the quality of the new homes? This calls for persuasive models and concepts that are cost-effective, sustainable
Making Affordable Housing Affordable
In response to the growing need for affordable housing and development, land laws and regulations have been reformed to create favorable conditions for real-estate developers to enter the southeast housing development market. By significantly lowering and fixing interest rates below prevailing market rate, the 30 trillion stimulus package introduced by the Vietnamese government improved affordability to middle income households, albeit at a high cost to government. To explore these growing
Housing Industry Full Of Hope
Monthly volume has been declining for over a year now; it is already touching a nearly 31-month low, thanks to hardening interest rates and unaffordable property prices. Correction is expected in the industry, but there is another perspective to it. No increase in property prices is also a correction. The property rates have been rising but it is not corresponding to the increasing inflation rate, which is a good sign.
HDFC has revised its floating interest rates on home loans for both existing and new customers with effect from 1st December 2010. This is in line with the rates of interest in the economy, which have hardened due to rising inflation and shrinking liquidity in the domestic market. HDFC has increased its Retail Prime Lending Rate (RPLR) on which its Adjustable Rate Home Loans (ARHL) is benchmarked, by 0.75% pa with
