3.Exploration and development

Affordable housing is currently in short supply in many European cities. Compelling models and a vision of the future are needed if demand is to be met. However, how can we reduce costs without limiting quality, while also meeting the needs of the population and the environment? This is what needs to be developed and discussed.

In the case of many Asian countries, they face the problem of housing a large population on a limited land area. Population density and national economic level determine the status and importance of affordable housing in many Asian countries. In the context of economic development, urban development squeezes the ecological environment. Centralized affordable housing is the solution to urban problems. It saves more land for the city, brings a certain buffer effect for the social economy, and also saves resources, which is a compatible development in housing sustainability.
