On March 15, 2012, PAVILION center hosted a lecture by Robert Marin, under the title Architecture Politics / Cultivating Ideas, in the frame of the exhibition Sheltered.
For centuries, the way the people lived it was the direct result of the way they worked.The house, as permanent living space, exclusively dedicated to rest and family activities, it is a relative new conversion and in terms of historical evolution, represents the remains of outsourcing lucrative work , education and sick care, to other institutions. The loss of many old functions in this social weaving, left room for new and different ways of conceptualizing housing, some rejected as utopian, some gradually accepted, some so recent, that only now are under test. To what degree there are solutions among so many proposals, is a personal decision, since individual housing concept is major influenced by individual choices. I suggest to take a look at some contemporary domestic architecture solutions, to identify the motivation and arguments of those involved in the process, and if it’s the case, to compare them with personal opinions on the topic.
