Abstract

This contribution presents part of the results produced by the University of Naples Federico II in the project PRIN 2017 TECH-START. The research investigates how the challenges of the circular economy and climate mitigation, combined with digital technologies, require new organisations for contemporary dwelling, including the need for healthy and safe environments. The contribution studies the concept of emergent dwelling with the aim of achieving a set of design requirements consistent with the many, diverse forms of living. These requirements apply to the project of a multigenerational lifetime house, selecting those most suitable for a smart residency that integrates the socio-productive and health care chain into the territory, with particular reference to the elderly population and the most fragile groups in a life-course perspective.
