The domestic space: woman and house. (2011)

BOOK: (Book)

Title: The domestic space: woman and house.

  • Author(s): Atxu Amann Alcocer.
  • Publisher: Editorial Nobuko.
  • Pages: 158.
  • ISBN: 9789875843554.
  • Summary: This research seeks to establish the links between ways of thinking, seeing the world, ways of life and housing, and in particular, alerting the fundamental changes that the last century has starred in in the Western world: the revolution of the information, and above all, of women. If the critique of architecture also involves questioning the world and life, it is a question of demonstrating that in the dialectical architectural-family relationship, women have been the great absentee of history, having not belonged to either private space or the public. If the house, "as a driver of family prejudices in the attitudes of the head of the family towards women and children, has been formed in millennia", in less than a century, the Western woman has managed to empty it of contents. He has not managed to undo the consistency of that cage; it's just gone.
  • Abstract: This research tries to establish the links between ways of thinking, of seeing the world, ways of life and housing, and in particular, alerting of the fundamental changes that the past century has led in the western world: the information revolution , , of women. If the criticism of architecture also involves questioning the world and life, it is a question of demonstrating that in the architecture-family dialectic relationship, women have been the great absent from history, not having belonged neither private nor public space. If the house, "as a shell of family prejudices in the attitudes of the head of the family towards women and children, has been formed in millennia", in less than a century, the Western woman has managed to empty it of contents. He has not managed to undo the consistency of that cage; It is simply gone.
