'I find Open House International very useful
in my multifold housing education because it provides
a comprehensive knowledge crossing various disciplines,
crossing cultures, climates, social issues, economies,
design approaches and technologies. It is also handy enough
so I can quickly tailor different "knowledge sets"
for different types of students and for different teaching
purposes. As far as I know, there is no other housing
journal in the world which can serve housing education
as well as this one." - Prof. JIA Beisi, University
of Hong Kong.
"Among journals focused on the built environment,
OHI has always stood
for the possibility of informed discourse on cross-cutting,
local issues linking methods, the culture of building,
built form studies,
technology, pedagogy and user-centred public policy and
goodness it is there, for students, teachers, researchers
alike." - Prof. Stephen Kendall, Ball State University,
"Open House International has served not only as
a lonely beacon for people dedicated to making housing
more affordable for low income populations all over the
world, but also as one of the few 'texts' used in teaching
and research. Its continued availability is essential
for one more reason, namely, the 'opening up' of all of
Central and Eastern Europe to new ideas on how to provide
housing from planning and design, to procurement and assembly.
Not only should Open House International be on every library
shelf of every University, but also on the desk of every
decision-maker concerned with housing". Dr. Eric
Dluhosch - Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA.
"Open House International is a fine journal with
a long track record of serious reporting on housing research,
both in developed and developing countries; required reading
for everyone-academic or practitioner - who needs to keep
abreast of developments in their field".Prof.
Witold Rybczynski - University of Pennsylvania, USA.
"Open House International is essential reading for
anyone seriously concerned with home and neighbourhood
building today. No other publication provides so much
information that is useful as well as interesting for
students and practitioners working for sustainable development
wherever they are".John Turner, Hastings, UK
"Since its beginning in 1976 Open House International
has been the only journal to cover the extremely important
ground between the traditional and the" new "concerns
of architects and builders and those of development studies.
This is of increasing significance in the context of the
international agendas for the next milennium". Prof.
Pat Wakely, Development Planning Unit, University College
"One major contribution of Open House International
is its ongoing emphasis on open ended design as an important
attribute of environmental quality of built environments.
Through this, Open House International has ensured that
this topic has not been forgotten and has continued to
develop". Prof. Amos Rapoport, University of Milwaukee,
"As an educator, I use many of the articles published
in Open House International as supplementary material
for my courses since the information is well researched
and quite often state-of-the art in its field". Prof..
Avi Friedman, McGill University, Canada
"A truly worldwide range of countries are included
with a spread of subjects from theory and practice of
settlement planning to individual housing as well as book
information on these subjects. The journal is of great
value to post graduate research and teaching". Institute
of dvanced Architectural Studies(loAAS), The University
of York, UK
"Open House International provides a unique, international
forum for presentations of the multi - dimensional nature
of housing with illustrative examples from all continents
around the globe. Today this perspective is rare in mainstream
academic and professional publications". Dr. Rod
Lawrence, University of Geneva,Switzerland.
