Excerpt from Shelter for Living

This book was written primarily for students in schools of architecture and home economics, and for architects, builders, and prospective home owners. Although it is directed chiefly to those who plan, build, remodel, and occupy, or hope to occupy, single-family detached dwellings, it should be of value to those who must select, evaluate, and live in rented houses or apartments. The text and illustrations are, therefore, presented as a means of teaching basic principles which may be applied to the design and choosing of various kinds of habitations - single or multiple, inexpensive or medium-priced.

Even though the book deals principally with the problems associated with home ownership in general, it does not neglect those other aspects of shelter. It emphasizes the necessity of visualizing the relationship of single and multiple dwellings to a city and regional plan. It calls attention to the need for decent habitation for those in the lower-income brackets and also to the limitations and the possibilities of low-cost and low-rent housing. While concentrating upon a phase of housing concomitant with the interests of those who own, or expect to own, their homes, it presents an analysis of those other types of shelter needed by the remainder of our population.

This approach to the subject of planning homes which will serve as satisfactory backgrounds for congenial family life differs in several respects from that of some other books upon the subject. These others allow discussions of style, size, or cost to dominate; this book emphasizes the physical-social environment in which we live, the resulting activities in the home, and the functional house which should develop in response to these influences. Thus this approach is based upon function rather than style - upon use rather than tradition. In spite of this emphasis, the related items of appearance, cost, construction, and equipment are not omitted; in fact, the attempt is made to assign all the factors which contribute to the design of a successful home to their proper places in the process of planning "shelter for living."
