The great Scottish housing disaster: the impacts of feudalism, modernism, energy efficiency and vapour barriers on indoor air quality, asthma and public health

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper represents 30 years of research into the arena of housing and health. It brings together the conclusions of three books and the findings of over 20 research papers undertaken by the author and published by medical, engineering and social policy journals. This work has sought to highlight the links and connections between the diverse arenas of urban form, building design, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, respiratory medicine and immunology, all within the socio-economic framework of a small damp country on the fringe of northern Europe.
