why do we need buildings

Housing Economics

Why do we Need Buildings?

L2

  • We build because little that we do can take place outdoors. We need shelter from sun, wind, rain, and snow. We need dry, level platforms for our activities. Often we need to stack these platforms to multiply available ground space. On these platforms, and within our shelter, we need air that is warmer or cooler, more or less humid, than outdoors. We need less light by day, and more light by night, than is offered by the natural world. We need services that provide energy, communications and water and disposal of wastes. So we gather materials and assemble them into the constructions we call buildings to satisfy these needs.

What are the minimum requirements?

  • Legal Security of Tenure: this protects people from eviction, harassment, and other threats. The States must provide and enforce security of tenure in consultation with affected groups
  • Availability of Services, Materials, Facilities, and Infrastructure: Housing includes facilities essential for health, security, comfort, and nutrition. For example, there must be safe drinking water, energy for cooking, heating, lighting, sanitation facilities, refuse disposal, storage and emergency services
  • Affordability: The cost of adequate housing should not compromise the satisfaction of other basic needs
