Abstract
It is anticipated that within the next years it will be necessary to construct as many new housing units as have been constructed. This need
for new housing considered against a background of continuing urbanization, clearly indicates that an increasing proportion of an expanding
housing market will be devoted to multi-family types of housing or apartments. The inevitability of this trend contains a challenge to the
architect to do more than merely meet statistical demand. He must rather address, identify and solve the problems of multi-family building
types as an attractive to free standing single family buildings.
