Why & How

Understanding different cultures is becoming crucial for a deeper comprehension of cultural diversity and home is a concept intrinsically connected to the culture of living, connecting the private to the social life. 


Self-built settlements are the spontaneous answer to the spatial need of home and represent 

an important expression of the local culture of living. 

I do this through the mapping of different living typologies to create a transversal knowledge of different cultures’ way of living.

The numbers of surveyed houses are voluntary not homogeneous. However, the sample is significative as it represent the local culture of living.
