It aims to identify, understand and analyze the process of materialization of the house under transformation in the cities of Caconde-SP, Casa Branca-SP, Mococa-SP, Sao Jose do Rio Pardo-SP, Guaxupé-MG and Muzambinho-MG adopting the hypothesis that The exemplars resulting from local knowledge suffered adaptations caused by a new conjuncture that affected this region in a similar way and provided conditions for the introduction and diffusion of new customs, ways of living, programs, spatializations, architectural aesthetics and construction techniques, based on what it was previously produced, in the knowledge and performance of domestic and foreign artisans and professionals.

It is based mainly on unpublished, documentary and field surveys; interviews and readings of related studies.
