Husos is a platform for the development of both spatial interventions and research projects in architecture and urbanism. Husos is committed to the development of an architecture that is sensitive to the everyday, to the transformational capacity of small daily actions, to the empowerment of micro communities, to the possibilities of cooperation and exchange, to the beauty of diversity and singularity, to the constructive role of shared imaginaries and affections and to the potentials of the unexpected. We employ an approach that is environmentally responsible, transdisciplinary and permeable.
Husos is based in Madrid.
