What makes a home, house?

Norman Foster once said: "I am convinced that the quality of the spaces that surround us can improve the quality of our lives". And he was right. The space in which we live changes our life and our life shapes the space in which we live, so as soon as the opportunity arises to look at the 'spaces that surround us' through the eyes of those who live in those spaces, there is no we have had it repeated twice ”. Thus Thomas Manss explains the origin of the involvement in the HomeSapiens project.
The magazine revolves around the theme of the house. “In English there are two words 'house' and 'home' which in Italian we simply translate as house, but one represents the building and the other the life inside. HomeSapiens explores the theme of life at the expense of the building " says Enrica Corzani "And as an architect I don't think there is anything more mysterious and fascinating ... than what happens to a building after it has been handed over to those who are going to live there."

From Kobo Abe and his life in a cardboard box to Iain McKell and the many years spent as a nomad with gypsies, all the stories tell - through the voices of their very different and extreme actors - with intimacy and affection what makes a home, home , or as they would say in England: “what makes a house a home”.
