Originally published in 1972, this work by HK has proved to be of great topicality all over the world. K levels his criticism against builders, governments and administrations that construct private and public buildings without any thought of who is going to use them: humans. Especially in the case of schools, this has proved to be a dismal development since it is the human organism in its most tender form which is exploited and deformed by bad buildings. Bad building is a result of ideology – that of a society based on competition, profit and information technology. Kükelhaus then draws up plans of how to re-orientate building and relating it to the frame of human psychology and biology. He gives applicable answers as to how we should build so our children will have a healthy and meaningful environment.
