concepts that enable the users interaction and participation

Strengths: - Economic and constructive sustainability: only what is demanded is built and paid for. - Adaptability: The houses adapt to the real needs of their inhabitants . - Individuality: The inhabitant is part of the construction process of his/her environment and therefore is more identified with it.

Difficulties: - Although they have adapted the house to their needs, some users aren´t fully aware of the concept. - For the success of + or - House it´s necessary to rationalize the building process so that the structure and the sytems become cheaper and more adaptable. - Projects like this one should be carried out in the public sector rather than the private sector so that the less privileged social groups get a real chance of access to a house.
