Abstract: After the Tsunami aftermath in Thailand, many housing projects were instigated with partially or fully supporting the alleviation of communities’ accommodation and, indirectly, underpinned community-based housing design and planning concept. There have been two obvious approaches; the fully donation-based housing programme, delivered directed from the donors, and the social-based housing programme based on communal reciprocity with the assistance from local/national non-government development organisations (NGOs). Having taking part in a couple of change to the number of case studies, the author mirrors their processes and results in different settlement characteristics in terms of physical configuration, community-based organisation, and the social-relation of the community members. The paper presents three issues; 1) The patterns of housing programme delivery in post-Tsunami, Thailand; 2) a short comparison of how different housing programmes affect social relationships among the dwellers and how neighbourliness may be re-established; and 3) a discussion on positive and negative impacts of post-Tsunami housing programme delivery as well as on lessons to be learned.
