A transdisciplinary, transinstitutional, and transnational integrative framework for high quality and performance, Affordable, and sustainable housing Academic Article uri icon


  • The built environment is the most critical element in any society to ensure the quality of life of its people, its growth and evolution, and ultimately, its survival. Within this context, the provision of high quality and performance, sustainable, and affordable housing for every socio-economic stratum of a society continues to be a critical need, and still remains an elusive goal. This paper offers an integrative framework to effectively face this need and achieve this goal. Envisioned as a public-private partnership among academia, industry, and government, three main cornerstones - a collaboratory, a cyberinfrastructure, and a set of new paradigms, provide a solid foundation to this framework.
