Essay --

Architecture without ArchitectsThroughout time, the gypsy settlements were perceive as the unknown that might put at risk the known. Therefore they ar shoved to the edges of cities, as well as of society we live in. They become the slums we command to get rid of, by reshaping them according to our own expression of living. The examples of designs for Roma settlements were carried out using our techniques and regulations, without recognizing an imminent need for different.The different within a glob Modernist graphic designerure was challenged through the means of various movements that were searching for alternative architectural exerts. A relevant example is of the artist-architect Constant Nieuwenhuys, that took an interest in the brass section of a capital of Italy camp - that later on became his first models in a series of maquettes of an utopian city prototype called New Babylon - one shared residence, with conveyable elements that allow for an-ever changing layout to respond to the inhabitants needs a symbol of laity and an architecture that would instigate a transformation of daily reality. In this representation, the Gypsy camps and the nomadism itself encouraged to explore new extents of architectural practice. Another example is of the architect Georges Candilis who designed a Gypsy settlement at the periphery of the French town of Avignon It was a very hard problem. The notion of ownership is only different in these people. The houses are inhabited in turn by different families. My design comprised four rings of 20 apartments each, a prepare and a social/cultural center. In the end, after 20 days without maintenance, these buildings fell to ruins and were torn down.

The installation at the Venice Biennale, and its later award of the Golden Lion, unveils that the architecture community is ready to contemplate the puzzle of Torre David, as an opportunity to learn and apply the acquired knowledge into daily practice and understanding.Coming back to the topic of Roma, we are facing the paradox - to digest not on how to reshape Roma habitation according to our way of living, but rather how to learn from them and even apply some of their practices to our lump living. What did seem repulsive or disturbing might turn into incontrovertible practical lessons of temporality and change, flexible habitation, recycling and community life.1 Rory Stott,, 07.02.20132 Installation by Urban Think Tank, Justin McGuirk and Iwan Baan, Venice Biennale of Architecture 2011/2012
