520    This book combines the architectural and urban scales to 
       demonstrate that urban intensity determines the success of
       housing. The authors provide a typology of housing 
       according to the ways in which diversity and density are 
       created. Comparisons with historical models and critical 
       appraisals based on the authors' unique standing give 
       information on the pros and cons of major types of housing,
       their pitfalls and successful examples
