    Jul 12 2012: Housing For The Future :
    Given that half of world's population lives in urban areas, and rest continues to migrate, so its ought that we need to relook at our urban planing, homes tops the list in that plannig. Most of the emmerging cities are in developing world specialy in Western India, Eastern China and South Thailand, which are very densly populated, so houses should be multi storied to avoid space crunch, natural illumination and solar heating should be given importance to save energy, all homes should be connected to a city based sewage which on later stages can generate bio gas and mannures.

    House in terms of life supporting system :
    Indded house is a life supporting system, but given the fact that famlies are splitting to form nuclear units, house has lost its social importance, and only remains system to sustain physical requirements of life - shelter.

    Ideal house in future :
    Compact, energy efficient, with rapid mass transit system/ public trasport in close proximity.
