More emphasis than ever before is now being put upon the functional characteristics of buildings regarded as living-spaces rather than as structures.
* The investigations recorded in this paper have been carried out by the Department of Applied Physiology of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine under the direction of Prof. G. P. Crowden as part of an extra-mural research contract with the Chief Scientific Adviser's Division of the Ministry of Works for the study of housing requirements for comfort and health.
