The house is a seminal reflection of socio-political relations of people in all cultures. Besides being the place that shelters and protects human life, the way it is built, used and divided can reflect how people relate to each other and organize their society. This project is an homage to one of the most brilliant brazilian architects of all time: Lucio Costa. In 1956 Costa won the competition for the urban plan of Brasilia and in 1964 he designed the installation "Riposatevi: an invitation to rest" for the Brazilian Pavilion at the 13th Milan Triennale. Guitars and colourful hammocks displayed the paradox of a country where laziness and sloppiness are stigmas and yet it was possible to build a new capital in a few short years.
