Based on empirical research from 29 major postwar housing estates in 15 European cities, this collection explores mass housing experiments, examining the problems, policy responses and residents' everyday experiences in the estates in the context of change and regeneration. -- Although there has been much published on the problems of mass housing estates in Europe, there has been little work that has sufficiently clarified the presence and role of difference within and between estates. This book - based on in-depth research on nearly 30 post-Second World War housing estates across Europe - focuses on 'differentiation' to fill this gap. Revealing that estates have an array of differences in terms of characteristics, types of inhabitant, positionings within the housing market, location, history of development, and context, this collection highlights characteristics and processes hitherto overlooked or under-emphasised, to show how a better understanding of the functioning of postwar housing estates can be developed. Ultimately this could lead to improved policy responses, which will go beyond the classic emphasis on physical restructuring.
