This study focuses on different forms of housing in Tunisia and their various types of construction. It seeks to better understand the phenomenon of traditional and modern housing for the purpose of potentially reshaping the way we build in a particular context. This study provides a realistic solution for accommodation, and it explains how to think about housing differently in order to live together more effectively and to reflect an ideal evolutionary and ecological approach to architecture for future living spaces. This research shows that housing can reflect new social and community lifestyles and can also develop and adapt to economic, environmental, and social needs. Furthermore, the basic premise of the city of the future is to involve humans with the design process and to develop social exchange by promoting social connectivity around concepts for new design intentions such as smart buildings that are connected, modular, eco-responsible and respectful of the environment.
