Caracas: Growing Houses

Marjetica Potrc's Caracas: Growing Houses at the group exhibition Architektonika 2 is an architectural case study of two buildings in the informal city of Caracas, which consists of small, self-built neighbourhoods that form village-like communities.  Negotiations between the built structure and the infrastructure are the basis of the design philosophy of the houses.
