HOMInG Interview with Tasoulla Hadjiyanni
Conducted by Barbara Bertolani
“Home to me is a process, a never-ending quest of trying to create meaning in life through a residential environment. In The Right to Home, I shifted the question from what is home to how people construct home. What I learned is that home is essential to human existence…. all of my interviewees knew what home meant to them and how they could create it. Every single one of the people whose stories are highlighted in this book strived to construct home and a sense of belonging out of the spatial reality in which they lived, devoting time, energy, and funds to transform their living environments into places with meaning and significance”.
