Gender Studies

Einfach und selber bauen (1998- 1999)

The research project 'Evaluation of IBA Projects "Einfach und selber bauen"' studied the experience of families building their own homes in a demonstration programme of the International Building Exhibition Emscher Park (IBA) "Einfach und selber bauen". The study analysed their motivations, problems and difficulties as well as their strategies to cope with the (enormous) time pressure and the physical and partly also phychic stress caused by self-help, including the impacts on the familial situation, division of labour between genders, etc. with the help of structured guideline interviews.
