High-rise housing for low-income people is a very controversial topic, with high-rise low-income housing failing in some countries and succeeding in others. Therefore, questions arise as to why some countries fail in high-rise low-income housing while others have succeeded using the same concept. The main objective of this book is to critically evaluate the Sri Lankan Government’s past and present housing policies, comparing them to local and international experiences of high-rise low-income housing, and to investigate whether high-rise housing is an appropriate city planning solution to the problem of the scarcity of housing for low-income people in Colombo.
