Informal settlements are often seen in the context of housing. Rarely is the question asked if these settlements are homes? Conventional wisdom has dominated the thought of these dwellings, assuming them as substandard dwellings and environments, so how could they be considered home. This paper looks at the informal settlements in Kenya-Nairobi as a possible cultural landscape, which I call home2. This landscape is active, dynamic, and communicates socio-cultural values that may assist with the larger urban landscape in Africa, by considering settlement as home. Investigating from a different perspective the informal settlement phenomenon, I present some observations that question whether the approaches to resolve these settlements or housing in Kenya are lacking an important topic - home.
