(Study of the contemporary dwelling space in the Dominican Republic, and its possible progression from the minimal habitation unit to the residential space of the modern Dominican – related to a global context.)
The project defined with this group of essays and exercises is an abstract object meant as a coherent way of reinterpreting the relations established by a subject with its universe, a new alternative of inhabiting. The relations subject-object are built in the intermediate space between their own reflections; this is why contemporary dwelling must incorporate into its core the concept of today’s temporality – our own critical interpretations of the cycles that define our actual needs and existence – which no longer relates with the (spatial) symbols of the traditional dwelling of the 20th century.
