The Hut Factory is based on setting where energy becomes a crisis, thus resulting in an increasing demand for manual labour and man power in industrial sectors. In this era, the population survives on the manufacture of huts where its main users are the formal and informal communities. The factory explores the dynamic between the formal and informal through acts of appropriation and reappropriation. The huts represent ‘freespace’; spaces without any predetermined function which encourages creativity and spontaneity in appropriation of space.
