Abstract

This is the question from which to start the narration that leads us to reflect on what the city (macro-object) is (and where it goes) today, starting from the house (micro-object) and living (meso-dimension) in their recent and older transformations between: technology and society, environment and media, design and planning, living and use. Here we will try to conduct some short notes trying to highlight the junction points, by looking at the techno- social fault breaks between the industrial (and pre-industrial) and post-industrial global ages. A complex process that leads the house to evolve into the home and to be a structure, then a function (exclusive) and today perhaps a complex and articulated social form susceptible to sharing. A projection that is guiding us towards the transformations of smart cities and those emerging networks of new digital artisans in the fab-labs and clusters of urban makers who reconstruct the 16th century workshop-houses while being connected in dense social networks hybridized by co-working and co-housing oriented towards the co-generation of widespread creativity. We are infront of a jump of a paradigm in the sense proposed by RenèThom some decades ago. The 21st century gives us a paradigm shift as a "fault break" not so much in the technical-structural aspects as digital emerging world in the strict sense, but of the context frame in which the "house" first and then "dwelling" were consolidated daughters of a design rationalism and planning that had removed places, traditions, historicity, as well as a balanced relationship with nature and technology and which had turned away from the meaning of urban space and common or shared goods, under the banner of the imperatives of the production of mass and therefore of the houses-dwellings "of the masses". The current society of customization and personalization (albeit mass) of building artefacts (and their contexts) as well as other goods takes us towards a new (post) modernity which is represented by the globalized society where, moreover, urban, extra-urban and post-urban come to fusion and often to con-fusion. Therefore, living as a symbol of well-beingis probably on the decline because the One Best Way of the "home for all" model is abandoned and therefore of the model of the uniform house and the best way to build it at the lowest cost coupled with the "claims of the right to home". Mythologies, mystics, and stories that have accompanied us so far seem to decline in favor of a "global" rethinking of the new models of living, deriving from new relationships with wealth and savings, strongly tested by the epochal crisis that we are perhaps overcoming. The new relationships with the environment must lead us to associate lower energy costs, passive houses and new services (individual and collective) such as social housing towards superior livability and well-being without adjectives. Furthermore, from the relationships with the emerging technologies of materials, from heavy to light, from energy consuming to energy saving up to intelligent energy, from the immobility to the mobility of the modules of the house itself that can be completely rebuilt, recycled or even transported, or made in 3D by re-coupling small and medium batches with customizational so through advanced technological-connective equipment (Wi-Fi, home automation) also to answer security and / or interaction questions.
