Disruptive technologies are emerging and spreading through the hybridisation of info-telematics and spatial infrastructures in order to innovate living spaces, from homes to neighbourhoods. The tendency to transform how we live induced by emergency events requires disruptive and adaptive technologies, able to respond to the evolution of requirements in terms of health, safety and the multi-functionality of spaces and barriers. In both the private and the public sphere, the post-pandemic performance response requires integrated solutions on a transdisciplinary basis, where – in line with cybernetic thought – the human aspect is enriched with real solutions projected onto augmented reality, but tested through the tools of evidence-based design.
