Some proportion of the world’s population has always been committed to a life of nomadism. This transient way of life is, for some, a means of survival, a way to secure their next meal. For others, a nomadic lifestyle provides a chance to see the world on a small income. Today this lifestyle is intergenerational and world-wide. It is commonly referred to as a modern nomadic way of life. ‘A Transient Life’ analyses how traditional nomads reside and socialise in order to craft an architecture which emphasises social interaction and comfort as requirements for the modern nomad who travels and works throughout New Zealand.
