Abstract

The analysis of the “living space” and its peculiar morpho-architectural connotations in an uncertain and ever evolving reality implies the use of new paradigms linked to concepts such as temporariness, flexibility, disassembly, recyclability, adaptability and reversibility. Demographic transformations, in addition to ever-changing habits, rhythms and lifestyle, lead the present study to investigate time as a design paradigm of an evolutionary home, seeking a criterion and a methodological approach that is capable of thinking about modifiable spaces, which are not strictly predetermined but open to new ways of expressing the users’ need for customisation.
