As a starting point, we considered the need of having a minimal house that a person could carry with them. It could be either a house owned by that person, so it might be carried by any means (even by air), or a part of a mobile dwelling system made available for citizens in any city.

In our view, almost any camping system could cover the minimum needs, but it would not be adaptable to different situations. So we conceived a system with three preconditions: it should be possible to stand on the whole of its surface; its structure should be stable and its skin should be adaptable to the place and time of the stay; and the system should meet the minimum needs of hygiene and comfort.

In the cracks of programmed elements we find the most dynamic, convulsed spaced of the city every day. Urban voids (suitable for being spontaneously and immediately appropriated), public spaces (basically stable but with potential for programmed flexibility) and even some private spaces (for years underused and waiting to be exploited) might on many occasions receive non-permanent dwellings that solved temporary problems or decisions.

  1. é com certeza uma ótima aplicação para catástrofes, onde as habitações são totalmente destruidas, como agora no Haiti.
