Havana Block: The ingenuity of building

In his primitive phase, Man did not significantly transform his environment but limited himself to take what it offered him. Thus, the first “houses” were creations of nature: forests and caves. But this environment provided very precarious protection, so this distant ancestor was forced to build for himself structures that would provide the minimum security for his survival.
The starting point may have been merely practical. Persons need the protection of a home, as well as its beauty and comfort, which is why over the centuries, the building became not only a crucial task but also a means of artistic expression, which, using increasingly innovative and efficient techniques, emerged in practically all the cultures of the planet.
