The affordable city, first condition to quality of life?

Housing is the first determinant when it comes to the liveability of a city. It is one of the main challenges for cities in the 21st
century: how to guarantee quality and affordable housing for all? This is a complex issue as it crosses the fields of regulations,
land planning, architecture, urbanism, as well as public policy.
