Architecture is not where it is without history and to forget architectural history, as the other, would be enticement to repeat errors.

I think the problem with dwellings is mainly affordability, if we understood by that dign habitation. Since, as some have pointed, whenever humankind has had to the present the possibility, it has elected to increase the number of the individuals (instead of providing greater confort for the standing number -which it is yet to be seen it is a correct alternative to), it is unlikely that just an exam of the models of the past is enough to properly solve this formidable challenge of too much people in earth, if not now, coming.

So I think proper research of the proper ways of solving this need is what is more needed, and enough allocation of funds, and other systematical changes. Circumnstances vary by countries but this is by no means just a problem of the poorer countries, homeless people and youngs staying with parents longtime in their lives in advanced countries show.
