"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 our lives change and our lives plasma space in which we live, so as soon as the opportunity presented itself to look at the 'spaces around us' through the eyes of those spaces they live, do not we are made to repeat twice. " So Thomas Manss explains the origin of involvement in the project HOMESAPIENS.
The magazine revolves around the theme of the house. "In English there are two words 'house' and 'home' in Italian translate simply as a house, but a building and the other is the life within it. HOMESAPIENS explores the theme of life at the expense of the building " says Enrica Corzani "And by architect I do not believe there is nothing more mysterious and fascinating ... what happens to a building after it was handed over to those who will live."
