The history of the house, of the home, is the history of the human beings. Of how it was the technical and cultural evolution developed by the man to the hour to inhabit the space. This shows the exhibition \’Twelve houses/Twelve histories\’, and does it through an approach to the house through his surroundings, of the people that inhabit it, of his habits and of his form of life. The sample composes of photographies and maquetas. In a first section, titled \’Of the cabin to the house\’, offers a vision of the traditional architecture in diverse geographic zones, with a selection of pertinent traditional houses of the five continents.

A second section, titled \’Twelve houses. Twelve histories\’, presents twelve houses built during the 20th century and that have resulted fundamental for the evolution of the contemporary architecture.
