SOCIAL HOUSING IN GALICIA This book aims to provide an insight into 37 examples of public housing built over a hundred-year period in Galicia. It presents the plans, sections, and building details drawn to scale together with photographs of the exterior and the location, supplemented by the percentage of site and covered area, pedestrian, green area, apartment floorspace, and a list of the architects responsible of their design and construction process.

This book offering an overview of the complexities involved in creating subsidised housing, and to pay tribute to those who saw housing as a social asset, striving to make it accessible to all segments of the population, as well as acting as a means for reflecting on our own nature and the legacy that has been passed down to us. It also offers a fleeting look at several of the reasons behind the transformation of our habitat and highlights the need for housing of those persons with lower incomes, criticising the errors that have prevented us from providing universal access to housing. In addition, it assesses the built city, the territory and its relationship with housing, as well as providing an introduction to the changes in collective social housing, and an appraisal of collective residences as the optimum solution for organising collective habitats in relation to the city.
