Moderate Priced Building
PByPrivate Enterprise
Advised By Architect
Low cost housing undertaken by
the government on a non-profit-mak-
ing basis and development of effi-
cient and adequate housing in the
more moderate income groups by pri-'
vate enterprise is the division of the,
field most likely to solve the housing
problem, according to Dean Wells I.
Bennett of the architecture school.
There are those who protest against
the principle of public housing and
deny its ability to create homes at low
cost, Dean Bennett said. They con-
tend, he said, that adequate housing
for the low income groups is provided
by.a 'sifting-up' process from the
slum areas to the homes vacated by
higher income groups, who move ilto
newly-bililt houses of moderate costs.
"Social workers, however, disclaim
any considerable 'sifting-up' and deny
that decent housing is provided for
the low income groups," Dean Ben-
nett said. "It means merely conges-
tion in :the old houses forced by the
doubling up of families to pay the
higher rent."
Solution To Social Problem
The tendency toward subsidized
housing has. been brought about by
the pressure of under-privileged
groups, the depression encouraged a
change of attitude toward housing,
Dean. Bennett continued. "We no
longer see housing projects as means
of creating jobs," he said, "but as the
solution to a social problem . quite
distinct from unemployment."
The first open statement of this
concern .for shelter as a matter of
public interest was the United States
Housing Authority created by the
Wagner-Steagall Act passed by the
last Congress. By this act Congress
niay appropriate public funds for the
construction of large-scale housing
developments. Allotments from these
funds are now. being made to cities
proposing suitable plans.
Challenge To Organize
"The tendency toward government
subsidized housing, so violently op-
posed by real estate and other pri-
vate interests, is a challenge to the
building industry to organize and co-
ordinate the work of the architect,
the contractor and the builder in an
effort .to produce housing more effi-
ciently," Dean Bennett said.
"The housing industry is the most
loosely organized and inefficient in-
dustry in the world. We are still
struggling along using antiquated
methods, losing millions annually
through waste, lost motion and lack
of coordination.
"The integration of the various
steps in building construction and in-
troduction of efficiency in production
is the hope of private enterprise."
