Abstract:
Abstract Among todays limited income families, the majority of the population in developing countries needs essential changes in their economic housing. The most essential change comes for their need for extra spaces in their apartments due to the increase in family members. This need push them to commit buildings offenses to create the space they need in an illegal way due to the limited space of economic housing apartments. The purpose of this paper is to introduce a solution for this problem using lowcost local simple kinetic architecture technology mechanism which can be used when they need extra spaces (indoor or outdoor spaces -terrace-extension) and can also be controlled. Beside, this solution gives the traditional economic housing appearance a diverse and renewable architectural form (nonphysical function) that is also a basic objective of this solution. This low-cost simple technology can stop people from building slums by using a simple mechanism that people can easily control and use according to the function they need, which will make them more comfortable and satisfied with their sustainable home. Keywords: Kinetic Architecture, Economic Housing, Spaces Extension, Local Mechanism.
