Abstract

In the last year and a half, the several months spent in lockdown have questioned the consolidated habitat models and spaces in which we live. The pandemic has accelerated all critical issues by highlighting the limits of cities, infrastructures, architectures, domestic spaces and lifestyles determined by obsolete archetypes and paradigms. However, this has meant that the cultural debate has focused on the importance of design, investment in research and the activation of open innovation dynamics, highlighting the social, economic and environmental impact of innovative and sustainable anthropocentric and ecocentric measures. Until the recent events, the house had undergone a process of expansion beyond its physical borders, gradually emptying itself, and expanding domesticity into the public space of the city (Lepore, 2004)
