The title of “Municipal Dreams: The Rise and Fall of Council Housing”


The title of “The Beyond Modernist Masters: Contemporary Architecture in Latin America”

Furthermore, the article entitled of “Image Perception of Future Tropical Houses in Thailand” was also reviewed and demonstrated the potential of the implementation of Thai family type in the past 25 years reveal that it has a tendency to change from the past. Generation X and Y groups of people represent important home buyers for the near future. The trends were found in almost all client representatives regardless of any personal factors. It can be concluded that building envelope has more impact on people’s perceptions towards the image of future house and tropical house than personal factors. Furthermore, we could also include 2 book review of “Municipal Dreams: The Rise and Fall of Council Housing” by Boughton, J. (2018) and “Beyond Modernist Masters: Contemporary Architecture in Latin America” by  Hernandez, J. (2010)  into this current issue.

Finally, this issue would not have been possible without the great support of the editorial board members, and we would like to express our sincere thanks to all of them. We would also like to express our gratitude to all who kindly contributed their papers for this issue and without the continued support and advice from member of our advisory committees and reviewers; we could not maintain the high quality, accuracy and relevance of this publication.
