A collection of articles that deal with the common living forms in Israel. It offers an architectural, aesthetic and cultural analysis of housing construction - both public and private.
The articles collected here examine the common living forms in Israel proper - within the green line - from a point of view that combines architecture and society: the ethnic, national and class identity of the living forms and their inhabitants, the ways in which architecture for housing expresses ideology and social concepts, and more.
