    Abstract

    Throughout the nineteenth century, in the field of building construction, new materials and techniques, allied with tools for calculation and analysis, allowed the dimensions of clear span, enclosed space to increase and for new configurations of space to be proposed. The themes have been the focus of extensive study in works from some architectural authors. In the intervening years other studies have begun to fill in many gaps. For example, a study of the general effect of development in central heating and ventilation on architectural design in the nineteenth century. This provides the point of departure for this sketch of the architectural environment as it evolved from the enlightenment to the threshold of Modernity. (Hawkes, D 2008). So, how can community life be encouraged, how can natural ventilation be improved and the reliance on air conditioning be reduced, how can the heat effect be reduced, how can energy consumption, CO2 emissions be cut and other air pollution be reduced, how can vegetation be increased and how can some of the benefits of landed living be made available to apartment dwellers? (Bay, J.H & Ong, B.L 2006). This paper will discuss the issues of the environment and the sustainability in the housing design of the affordable housing.
