Abstract

What is the level of in-permanence present in the idea of temporary emergency solutions? How much do these architectural solutions meet living comfort requirements? How long does an emergency last in Italy? We would like to share some reflections on the environmental quality of temporary housing structures by presenting the research experience carried out in Norcia, in close collaboration with the Municipal Administration. The study analysed the potential for regeneration and reconfiguration of housing modules designed and built to respond to the post-earthquake emergency. This is an optimistic vision of the opportunities offered by the cultural contradictions of living (permanence and change) as an exciting new frontier of the project.
