ZEMCH 2012

Housing is a system of energy and environment and required to accommodate wants and needs of individuals and society, which are usually considered to be diverse and dynamic. The 'needs' factor often reflects minimum quality of end-user products (i.e. housing) and may embrace 'adequacy' being prescribed in conventional codes, while the 'wants' may be satisfied only if they are defined clearly by stakeholders (e.g. house-users and builder/developers) at the design decision making stage. 'Mass customisation' is an oxymoron or, perhaps, a paradigm case of a systems approach to identifying the aforementioned wants and needs that should be incorporated into the design of end-user products (or homes). Albeit increasing market demands for achievement of social, economic and environmental sustainability in housing today, conventional homebuilders (and housing manufacturers alike) who are often reluctant to spending extra time, money and effort for information gathering of new products and services are still barely able to adopt recently emerging innovations including mass custom design approaches to the delivery of sustainable affordable homes.

ZEMCH 2012 aims to establish an intellectual forum of interactive discussion on design, production and marketing issues surrounding the delivery of low to zero energy/CO2 emission mass-customisable homes being built in developed and developing countries. The conference is open to any stakeholders who are involved in housing research, business, teaching, and policy making.
