The theme of this work is between the response to environmental hazards such as earthquakes of housing of the so-called "other Modernism" , over issues of conservation of historical materials in the final investigation of this kind of sustainable urban development, including inhabitant's participation. It is important to preserve memory, and we used the knowledge of art, a multimedia installation, and the role of photography as an example of virtual witness. We put in dialogue traditional earthquake resistant natural materials with modern construction. From here we learn lessons for retrofit.
