Information about informal Romani settlements housing are not found in books or archives. They are found live, in settlements. The intent of this paper is to point out that they represent a world of signals that can be detected through the methodological tools of observation and discussion with residents; also and therefore, to create guidelines for operational tools useful for an aware and contemporary design in their advancement process. Explanations of these values are obtained once the focus of observation is passed from object to process, and the objects are perceived as products of processes. This is the only possible way of developing adequate principles of future architectural realizations in Romani settlements that would be innovative, but within the articulation system of the local community. The paper will present a case study of a Romani settlement with this methodological apparatus applied as well as its concept, all research steps and results accomplished by such procedure. Milena Grbic instigates that the tendency in accomplishing the right of housing for the Romani has mostly remained theoretical, since not a single analysis with that aim included life experiences and actual processes of Romani housing Grbic, Umberto Eco stated that one must pay attention to semantical values that spatial relations obtain in certain ethnological and social situations Eco, Having all this in mind brings up a thought which calls upon a real practice of housing and usage of space.
