Dwelling On Housing

Housing has traditionally been defined and understood as a fixed, formal space where living functions take place.

This thesis looks at the housing as a process rather than a spatial container. The project redefines housing as an informal, transient, and reflexive process that emerges in the interaction between occupants and their shared environment by integrating the various functions of a communal dwelling in relation to one another, utilizing the indoor and outdoor environments, and adopting various strategies of environmental control.
