Several interviews were carried with different actors in Uruguay, namely architects specialized in earth architecture, academia, government, Uruguayan Federation of Mutual-Aid Housing Cooperatives (FUCVAM) and Technical Assistance Institutes (IATs).

Moreover, in the context of mutual-aid housing cooperatives, equally important is the investigation among cooperativists on the perceptions, reasons and barriers for adopting this mode of construction on their own cooperatives. After assessing those factors, recommendations will be provided in the context of Uruguay and Uruguayan mutual-aid housing cooperatives.
