VALENZUELA, Carolina. Plantas transformables: La vivienda colectiva como objeto de intervención. ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2004, n.58, pp.74-77. ISSN 0717-6996.

The ground plan may be understood as the genetic material of space, and though it is not able to specify which acts will occur in it, it is very precise in indicating which ones cannot. In collective housing, the problem that cannot be solved by a standard floor plan is obvious. New questions about typologies, construction and building strategies are raised by the search for floor plans that are capable of change, driven by the rise of unpredictable new family arrangements and the waning of traditionally dominant social patterns.

Keywords : Collective housing; flexible spaces; open plan; diversity; variability; flexibility.
