Scope and Content

This project series documents Minimum Cost Housing Group's human settlement study in developping countries, mainly in India and in China, in the 1970s and 1980s. The project led to three publications series "How the Other Half Builds" (Volume 1: Space, Volume 2: Plots and Volume 3: The Self-Selection Process). A series of audio-visual training packages entitled "Human Settlements Training Packages" was also produced in relation with this study. They produced a total of six series comprised of slides and audio cassettes that provide new ideas for planning low-income housing and low-cost technologies. The production of these training packages is based on years of field work in China and in India, and research in collobaration with the Vastu-Shilpa Foundation in Ahmedabad, India.

The material in this project series was produced between 1985 and 1993. The files contain a large collection of slides of the training packages, guides for the slide show presentations, and various textual records related to the production of the training packages. The project series also comprises correspondence with the Vastu-Shilpa Foundation and sketchbooks with study drawings of housing mainly in India, possibly by Vikram Bhatt. The file also includes textual records related to the production of the publications series "How the Other Half Builds", as well as dummies for the publications and the final version of the books.
