Hansy Better presents an alternate perspective of architecture viewed through a gender scope that allows people to eliminate restrictions and open their minds to new and innovative ideas; perceptions that somehow, positively destroy old paradigms. She explains several of her projects, showing how each received a different approach in the use of materials, orientation, and cultural aspects, depending on the client's needs. Sustainability and integration tend to be primary elements in her designs, as she understands the role of structures within a social context. Better also talks about the Big Hammock Project, in which she explains its whole process of design and construction. She speaks about the motivations she had and describes the main tendencies that encouraged her to carry out such work, along with the obstacles she needed to overcome.
