Manufactured living requirements become, since the 1950s, the neuralgic point of origin and arrival of modern diasporas. Drawing critical parallels between the seriality inherited from Garden Cities and Northern African kasbahs, modernist housing units are to migrations what the Ford Model T is to the car industry. Containers, pre-fabricated homes, guest houses and other modular habitats host the workers involved in the construction of standardized architecture units and standardized are, though in a more subjective sense, the houses that they dream to build at the end of the migration, once back home.
