Both chapters chosen intertwine house evolution within cities growth that takes place in the early twentieth century, developing an analysis discourse of the impact on daily life of a translation from rural to urban concentration.
Shelter is not a history book or a treatise on architecture, nor it is an anthropological essay or an interior design handbook, but it is a collection of different house histories from the beginnings of mankind to the present day, that have been constituted over the centuries. Daniel Torres explores man history and the relationship with his shelter, through extensive documentation and using the narrative agility provided by sequential art. A work that shows our life as it is: a great theatre in which we readers are also its privileged public.
