THE DOORN MANIFESTO
1. It is useless to consider the house except as a part of a community owing to the inter-action of these on each other.
2. We should not waste our time codifying the elements of the house until the other relationship has been crystallized.
3. 'Habitat' is concerned with the particular house in the particular type of community.
4. Communities are the same everywhere.
(1) Detached house-farm.
(3) Towns of various sorts (industrial/admin./special).
(4) Cities (multi-functional).
5. They can be shown in relationship to their environment (habitat) in the Geddes valley section.
6. Any community must be internally convenient-have ease of circulation; in
consequence, whatever type of transport is available, density must increase
as population Increases, i.e. (1) is least dense, (4) is most dense.
7. We must therefore study the dwelling and the groupings that are necessary to produce convenient communities at various points on the valley section.
8. The appropriateness of any solution may lie in the field of architectural invention rather than social anthropology.
