'I find Open House International very useful in my multifold housing education because it provides a comprehensive knowledge crossing various disciplines, crossing cultures, climates, social issues, economies, design approaches and technologies. It is also handy enough so I can quickly tailor different "knowledge sets" for different types of students and for different teaching purposes. As far as I know, there is no other housing journal in the world which can serve housing education as well as this one." - Prof. JIA Beisi, University of Hong Kong.

"Among journals focused on the built environment, OHI has always stood
for the possibility of informed discourse on cross-cutting, global and
local issues linking methods, the culture of building, built form studies,
technology, pedagogy and user-centred public policy and planning. Thank
goodness it is there, for students, teachers, researchers and practitioners
alike." - Prof. Stephen Kendall, Ball State University, USA

"Open House International has served not only as a lonely beacon for people dedicated to making housing more affordable for low income populations all over the world, but also as one of the few 'texts' used in teaching and research. Its continued availability is essential for one more reason, namely, the 'opening up' of all of Central and Eastern Europe to new ideas on how to provide housing from planning and design, to procurement and assembly. Not only should Open House International be on every library shelf of every University, but also on the desk of every decision-maker concerned with housing". Dr. Eric Dluhosch - Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA.

"One major contribution of Open House International is its ongoing emphasis on open ended design as an important attribute of environmental quality of built environments. Through this, Open House International has ensured that this topic has not been forgotten and has continued to develop". Prof. Amos Rapoport, University of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA

"As an educator, I use many of the articles published in Open House International as supplementary material for my courses since the information is well researched and quite often state-of-the art in its field". Prof.. Avi Friedman, McGill University, Canada
