Scientific Aspects of Housing Problems

Nature volume 135, pages 161163 (02 February 1935) | Download Citation



THE fundamental scientific problems of the building industry which underlie the housing question were touched upon by Dr. Stradling in a lecture on “Physics in the Building Industry” at the end of 1933; and again by Sir Harry McGowan in the Messel Memorial Lecture to the Society of Chemical Industry at Cardiff. They have also been indicated by Prof. Julian Huxley in his “Scientific Research and Social Problems” and in much greater detail, so far as the United States of America are concerned, by Mr. A. F. Bemis in “The Economics of Shelter”, the second of three volumes in a series “The Evolving House”.
