Current design modes of student residences are facing challenges of both philosophy and form. Past approaches no longer sustain new demands and require innovative thinking. The need for a new outlook is propelled by fundamental changes that touch upon environmental, economic, and social factors.

Thinking innovatively about university accommodation led to the idea to write Innovative Student Residences. The author offers a fascinating insight into contemporary design concepts and illustrates them with outstanding examples, showcased by full-color photography and detailed plans.
