With this comparatlve analysis of Latin American housing projects of sodal

interest we want to stress an integral vision of the housing probIem.

This is to say, we think that every approach to the housing problematic needs
to consIder the specifIc local and regional4eterminants in the context of the
structural elements, both at macro and micro level, that condltlonate and .
reproduce the miserable condItions of the habitat of large majorltles.

In part I we present some papers which enter into polItIcaI, technological,

typological and fadlltlary issues.
Part 11 consists ofthe presentation and analysis of 19 housing projects in
10 countries. We have deveioped a method of comparison that regards the
types of solution on urban, dwelling and organization level as weil as
quantltative aspects of the provision and the use of land and services.
