Małgorzata Makiewicz – House, Home, Domesticity. Re – open the House

by malkoshka

In my research I am interested in three aspects connected with house: house as building, home as a state of mind and the related to it domesticity and the process of domestication of space.

The house is a multi-layered structure, on one hand it is only architecture, which is affected by the environment, natural, social and economic factors. Subsequently house, its interior is not directly designed by the same architects but is created individually with clusters of objects, smells and memories, often identified with the warmth and security. There are different ways in which we as residents of our home country create home and otherwise we create it as immigrants. The earlier fact of connecting home and domesticity with the building has changed over the past few decades.
