Abstract

Housing is the basic problem of architecture. It is connected with its origin: the primitive shack.

Following the tradition of prefabrication, it is possible to think about new and alternative systems of construction, trying to generate rich and flexible spaces, which answer the changes and requirements of flexibility and adaptability in our society.

The project is about an exploration of the contrast between the possibilities of the prefabricated systems and the variety and changeability of our ways of life.

New technical solutions allow these new conceptions, creating a system capable of producing from single family houses to multiple story buildings, and attending different kind of aesthetic criteria.
