Who We Are
The International Federation of Housing and Planning (IFHP) is an international organisation focused on urban development issues. The organisation was founded in 1913 by the architect Ewart Culpin under the presidency of Ebenezer Howard, who is known for his publication “Garden Cities of Tomorrow” (1898). This publication became the basis for the Garden City movement period in city planning. The IFHP is currently based in The Hague, The Netherlands. Its current President is Flemming Borreskov, CEO of Realdania in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Since its very beginning, the IFHP’s driving force has been rooted in the desire to improve the physical conditions in which people live. It continues to do this by promoting good planning practices that are orientated towards an improving quality of life.
