Dwelling is both process and artifact

“Dwelling is both process and artifact: it is the experience of living at a specific location and it is the physical expression of doing so. … It is this double significance of dwelling – dwelling as the activity of living and residing, and dwelling as the place or built form which is the focus of residence – which encompasses its manifold cultural and material aspects.”

Paul Oliver
