Bidonvilles — yellow

Bidonvilles expand further on the study of livability in today's context. Different skyscrapers and dwellings embody diverse forms and shapes but they are still inherent to the same architectural context. Bidonvilles are archetypical houses as a parody on the way people live now. Cities are developing with inexhaustible fervor. Without thought or a vision of sustainability, houses are rapidly built one next to another; the functionality of the buildings, streets, and parks in total in the urban settings are not fully considered. Bidonvilles tranquilize or accelerate this process intentionally and provoke open communication in a society of human interaction.
