I just need an argumentative essay. I started it already so I need someone to take over
In today’s day and age where people are locked down in their homes due to the Covid-19 outbreak, one must ask how does the living space affect the psyche of its inhabitant? In the case of affordable housing, usually referred to as “the project” or in if you are in the UK “the estates”, things could be worse. Large families confined in small rooms without any outlook. Missing many basic needs such as internet and far away from city centers where they could be working or running errands.
When authorities started looking at the housing problem in the 70s and the 80s, architectures and urban planners came up with the idea of creating megastructures around cities. The idea was to host as much as possible in those building. (Diana) But this type of building was mainly driven by the costs. Cities were looking for solutions to the high demand of a growing population that couldn’t afford the rising prices of the housing market. At the same time, they had budget limitations.
