“Historically, societies build to inhabit, almost always ignoring that the ways of building also inhabit us.
In light of this argument it would be possible to tell the history of a society from the history of its constructions: the process in which the materials of the environment are transformed into the abode of man.
Far from developing a dialectic from the descriptive narrative of a social reality, my proposal aims to sensitize the view towards an urban plot worn out due to its socioeconomic condition, finding in the material that protects it an unpublished plastic content.”
