Problem

Socially inappropriate housing


Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Other Names:
Culturally insensitive house design
Nature:

Houses designed according to a standard, low-cost model, tend to be insensitive to the special needs of women with children, the elderly, the disabled, or those with many dependents. In the case of women, housing projects often use a gridiron layout that does not allow women to work in their house (whether domestic or making articles for sale) and at the same time keep an eye on their children. Such housing design also tends to be insensitive to the needs of those with a particular cultural emphasis (respect for elders, need of a secluded space for women, religious constraints, etc).
