About the course
Housing issues are as old as mankind. Housing impact individuals, societies, nations and the globe. The challenges of today and tomorrow, are not the same as in the past. In this course, students examine housing issues from the local, national right up to the global perspectives. These housing issues relate to design, legal, economic, financial and policy matters.
