Course Contents
The course ‘Design of Housing Programs’ consists of five parts:
• Process
This first introductory part of the course is about the different steps in the process of designing housing programs, the importance of the (demographic and economic) context and the actors involved.
• Theory
In the second part of the course, the theoretical underpinning of designing housing programs is provided: life cycle theories, residential mobility theories, housing market structure.
• Research
In the third part, the focus is on quantitative methods of measuring housing demand and housing preferences. Data from a large housing market survey are used to analyse demand
• Design
The actual design of a housing program is central in the fourth part of the course. Important topics are the use of research outcomes, policy choices and the design of a housing program that is competitive on the market and affordable for the target groups.
• Feasibility and Realisation
In this final part of the course we test the feasibility of the program by making a land development plan, taking into account project lead-time and market developments.
Study Goals
Upon completion of the course, the student:
• Understands the process of designing a housing programme and the role of the actors involved
• Comprehends the functioning (structure, mechanisms) of the housing market and the house building market
• Can measure and analyse housing preferences, housing demand and housing demand/supply ratio’s
• Is able to design a competitive and affordable housing programme, based on (municipal) housing policy priorities and the results of housing market analysis
• Can evaluate (feasibility test) and optimize a housing program
• Can report, present and defend the designed housing program
• Can assess and evaluate housing programs designed by others
Education Method
Lectures provide the theoretical, analytical and practical knowledge for designing a housing program. During the course (practice) students have to make several smaller assignments. These assignments are the basis for a report in which a housing program is presented and tested on feasibility. At the end of the course the students have to present and defend their report during a plenary session. The feedback (from other students and teachers) can be used for producing the final report.
