The book describes in line with Norbert Elias‘ civilizing
process how architecture was perceived as well as dwelling
practices over an extended period of societal development.
The genealogy of the civilizing process in dwelling
practices in Germany begins with the Palace of Versailles
and runs chronologically to present day residential
construction in Germany.

In addition the volume provides a bibliography of
architecture and gender.

Katharina Weresch is an architect and social
