The current economic crisis has meant, particularly in Spain, the almost
cessation of new buildings construction. This deep crisis will mean in future an
irreversible change in the Spanish construction model, based to date almost
exclusively on the brick.
After focusing on the Spanish property boom and examining its impact on the
concept of housing (in a few years the house has moved forward from being
contemplated exclusively as a primary good to be also considered a capital
asset), we analyse the influence that this transformation has had on architecture
(housing typology, building methods, the architectural profession and the
architect training) and offers architectural alternatives –trough the university–
to the present crisis.
The project “Houses built from accommodating cabins” is part of a larger
research within the line “Modular Architecture” developed by the Research
Group “Design and Industrial Production”, belonging to the Technical
University of Madrid, which aims to respond to the need for decent housing at
an affordable price, by offering through Internet the plans, resources and other
technical details required to build a house oneself.
The proposed houses are built from the combination of industrially made
modules (accommodation cabins, which are prefabricated modules usually
used as provisional constructions in conventional building works),
prefabricated subsystems and other catalogue components available on the
market, all they set together by dry joints.
