Living Ideals: Designs for Housing by Charles Correa

Research output: Book/ReportBookProfessional


The book analyses the vast range of Correa’s designs for housing. It is remarkable for the consistency with which he addressed the various complex issues of generating habitat. Through both his built and unbuilt work, deceptively simple ideas expressed with great clarity of thought help identify the essential elements of housing design, irrespective of whether it deals with villas, single-family homes or townships, or whether they were built for the poor or the rich.
