An early expirience with Low-Income Housing.

(and the influence og politics)


In 1977 a section of UN asked me for a project on 40 Low Income Houses outside Kabul in Afghanistan as replacement for squatters.

I had worked minimalizing the consumption of energy and rawmaterials in housing as research as PHD student on the Architectshool in Copenhagen, but never with realized low income houses.

I have noticed, that such houses in other poor countries often, when finished, was occupied by government employee's instead of the poor squattters they was ment for.
