Growing Up! THE SEARCH FOR HIGH-DENSITY MULTI-STORY INCREMENTAL HOUSING by Reinhard Goethert (Author, Editor), Matthias Nohn (Author, Editor)

A Publication of Mundus Urbano and Fachbereich Architektur at TU Darmstadt, and The SIGUS Group at MIT as members of The Global University Consortium Exploring Incremental Housing. This publication contains the summaries of presentations on multi-story incremental housing from the 6th Session of the World Urban Forum in Naples, Italy, in 2012. Framing questions: - Can the exploding urban population challenge be met with new incremental initatives for accommodating growth? - Can the demonstrated energy of the informal sector be supported through multi-story starters? - Does a multi-story incremental strategy justify the high capital costs of utility infrastructure networks? - When making policy choices, which is best to support: the informal dynamic, the formal housing, or transformation of existing public housing - or all three?
