DASH New Open Space in Housing EnsemblesDASH (Delft Architectural Studies on Housing) is a new journal that is wholly devoted to residential design. The point of departure is the Dutch tradition and contemporary practice, but the journal also addresses international developments. DASH will be published twice a year in a bilingual English/ Dutch edition.

This first issue is about semi-public space around residential buildings, which is publicly accessible in principle, while at the same time it has a more private character because of its situation, design and articulation. Five essays place this theme in a historical context and analyse the characteristics of the new open space in relation to the public, collective and private domains. The modern-day function of such space and where its roots actually lie are investigated in interviews with Sjoerd Soeters and Ton Schaap. The projects discussed, along with several noteworthy examples from the past, are documented extensively in the form of photographic reportages and renderings of the plans and sectional views
