INTRODUCTION The topic of housing has been
an important problem to mankind since the beginning of history.
Today, all developing nations of the world are vitally concerned
with housing technology and production. Research activities and
publications are increasing and more scientific procedures are applied
in this field. There is a definite need for a non-profit international
body to lead and coordinate all the major activities, practical
and academic, related to the topic of "housing as a human habitat.
It is this strong need which gave birth to the International Association
for Housing Science, IAHS, in St. Louis on April 24, 1972 during
the Second International Symposium on Lower-Cost Housing Problems.
