Abstract: High-rise housing, primarily public housing, is often viewed with caution in many western cities. However, the dissatisfaction has not spelt the end of high-rise housing. In Asia, Singapore and Hong Kong have similarly experimented and scored high residential satisfaction. The dictates of limited land, growing population and the desire for improved housing conditions have led these cities to celebrate skywards verticality. Over a period of 40-50 years, high-rise public housing has become not just the lifestyle of the majority of the population but also the dominant building form. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
