Title: COMPOSITE INDUSTRIALIZED ENERGY EFFICIENT CONSTRUCTION FOR HOUSING: CASE STUDIES OF RECENT DANISH AND SWEDISH HOUSING PROJECTS AND IMPLICATIONS FOR U.S. MULTI-FAMILY HOUSING
Author: Finrow, Jerry V.
Abstract: The countries of Scandinavia have been on the leading edge of housing design including construction technology for the past 20 years. In Denmark, housing innovation such as the current "co-housing" movement, has been and continues to be a way of life. In Finland, Tapiola was the pioneering example of the planned community. Having greatly improved U.S. wood frame technology by Industrialization, Sweden has produced the most advanced wood frame house In the world. Because of its setting and climate, Norway has been experimenting with Artia housing which has important international implications in housing design. Given this history of innovation it is timely that we carefully examine the technology of housing In Scandinavian countries. The research reported here is supported in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.
