“Most of Western society in the twenty-first century will undoubtedly live its life in a state of perpetual debt” – Roberta Marcaccia, Tutti Proprietari.

Whether it be on purpose or in blameless negligence, the modern architect significantly contributes to the exclusivity of the city and romanticises the ideology of ownership and perpetual debt. This project does not set out to dismantle the current neo-liberal regime, but merely exist within it. By creating an alternative means of occupation, it highlights the possible liberation that a life without debt or ownership can create, and the architecture that arises as a result.
