consequence, making them infinitely manipulable on the inside.

The project, based on the interpretation of architecture, a different understanding, emte by each of us, aims to adapt these houses to the environment, to the plant species.
The various works by Romera y Ruiz reflect the interpretation of architecture as a sort of “game”, where the concepts of learning, design, construction, design and imagination are mixed to create new buildings capable not only of communicating with the surrounding environment , but also with who will live in that place, transforming it into something very pleasant.
