Abstract
By : Nicholas Wilkinson

 
This issue has many manuscripts dealing with PLACE , GENTRIFICATION PROCESSES, HOME OWNERSHIP, VERTICAL GREENERY SYSTEMS, SUSTAINABLE PERFORMANCE OF BUILDINGS AND COMMUNICATION IN PRACTICES.
The general content runs accordingly from Affordable Housing Schemes, Sustainable Buildings, Housing Poverty, Housing Preferences, Place Identity, Carob Warehouses, Incremental Housing Egypt, and Digital Architectual Education.
The order of the articles are as follows: Affordable Housing Schemes, Sustainable Buildings, Gentrification Process, Vertical Greenery Systems,Place Identity, Carob Warehouses, Incremental Housing in Egypt, Digital Architectural Education and Kavalklidere - The formation of a residential district during the 1950ís.
Some twenty authors make up the number of writers for these nine manuscripts. It shows the diversity of authors for all Open House papers and in particular the focus and research components of the same.
Next year in 2015, the first issue will be the fortieth volume of the journal. It has generally been a smooth process till now with two theme issues each year and two open issues. At the moment we have a large influx of papers making the planning a little difficult and authors are somewhat troubled by the wait time for their publication date. However they should rest assured that everything will be resolved in due course. The issues are full through 2015 and 2016.
Finally I have pleasure to announce the forth coming CIB W 104 Open Building Implementation to be held in September 2015 at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. There will be a strong focus on Open Building implementation and other current issues surrounding the subject. Those who wish to participate should contact Stephen Kendall at his home address, 220 West Durand Street, Philadelphia PA 19119, USA
The Editor and collaborating editor Dr. Ashraf Salama and Web Site manager Emmanuel Tibung Chenyi wish our readers a very Happy New Year for 2015. Nicholas Wilkinson AADipl RIBA Eastern Mediterranean University, Faculty of Architecture Via Mersin 10 Turkey
