DASH (Delft Architectural Studies on Housing) is a thematic journal devoted to residential design. It is published twice a year.

In emerging economies all over the world, massive urbanization leads to an acute need of affordable housing. DASH Global Housing is a special double issue focused on architectural and urban planning models implemented to face this challenge worldwide.

DASH explores the tension between the required mass production and solutions tailored to local circumstances. The emphasis is both on the design of the individual dwelling and the city as a whole. What makes a good, compact dwelling? How can new  megacities do justice to the existing social and economic structures, to local production methods and the individual wishes of residents? Experts from the Netherlands and abroad shed light on this global phenomenon.
