The home is conceived as midpoint between natural and human nature. It occupies the edge between nature (the natural world) and human nature (the human condition); it provides an opening to “all that is” (the interior and exterior world). The morphogenesis shown in the images explores the fusion of nature and human nature, an individuation process from which the prototype emerges as a singular hybrid in-between artefact and living thing.
