Changes of rehabilitation for large public housing projects based on an excample of western countries

Joanna Czado


Precast concrete constructions were used by many countries during the second half 20-th century to provide low-income housing for the growing urban population. However nowadays urban residential buildings became one of the major problems cities have to address; with their day to day issues like anti-social behavior and crime. This project aims to show how different countries attempted to rehabilitate those places. I will provide an evidence showing that to rehabilitate those housing estates we need one necessary factor and that is a change in mentality inhabitants living in block estates.
