“Housing in the Third Millennium between Tradition and Innovation”
43rd. IAHS World Congress, Cochabamba, Bolivia
Feeling at home, in all ages, has meant possessing and enjoying the internalized things we have, knowing how to move in the dark, recognizing the smells, the paths, and the color of the light that comes from the windows. The house is a set of spaces that preserve our memories and our thoughts and tell us our existence.
From the houses like the huts or huts of the first civilizations to the Domus of the Roman patricians, from the religious and scientific constructions of the Mesoamerican cultures to the dwellings of the poorest classes of the towns of the medieval lords, from the palaces of the Renaissance period to today’s co-housing, the house has always represented the security, affection and freedom of men, women and their families
Thus, in the Andean intercultural tradition, the relationship between mother earth (Pachamama), man (Chaca), and the house (Uta) is based on a relationship of respect and integration, characterized by the use of matter prime of the place, as well as: wood, straw, raw earth, stone; of the optimization of natural resources such as: sun, wind, water, land; and food resources such as: potatoes, coca, corn, etc.
