D W E L L || OS is a theoretical project that aims to redefine design’s role in combustive spontaneous settlements. By focusing on building as a process rather than a product, design is extended to the end users by allowing them to be the decision makers at the course of their ever changing personal tastes, family forms and financial status. Architect becomes system maker – a role that anticipates different systems that propagate different uses, forms and ideal creation. By forming a culture of reciprocity between architect and end users, D W E L L || O S allows for an adaptive mode of living and hopefully define an architectural expression for spontaneous settlements.
