LIVING IN SKELETONS
L’envers des villes AFAA 2001 - first prize
The discovery of a building known as the O squeleto by the inhabitant of the Gloria district in Rio de Janero, showed us that reality conceals original ressources. In a framework neglected during many years, some inhabitants-builders constructed themselves their own appartements. Under pressure of needs, they set up an involuntary collaboration between construction industries and auto construction, that we see like a track for new economical and participative housing in dense urban centre. To optimize this construction process, we developed skeletons for housing, an alternative for the diversity of housing solutions. Since these meetings, we are working to optimize this construction process to make a habitat that the society can accept like an alternative for the diversity of housing solutions. That the way we developed the skeletons for living.
