El arquitecto Alastair Parvin presenta una idea simple pero provocativa: ¿qué pasaría si en vez de que los arquitectos diseñaran edificios para los que puedan costearlos, fueran los ciudadanos normales los que pudieran diseñar y construir sus propias casas?

Alastair Parvin believes in making architecture accessible to 100 percent of the population. Full bio
