The cluster HOUSING reflects and questions the future of housing, and in particular social housing, by developing research that is able to lead the habits, times and operating methods of the project and construction of housing a little further forward.
The Cluster assumes emerging issues such as behavioural changes, adaptability and multi-purpose nature of residential spaces, the prospects for technological and functional evolution and the redefinition of socio-normative constraints. Starting from these assumptions, and from the awareness of the need to develop a mature ecological vision of living capable of dealing with the world of digital technologies, the Cluster aims to identify new processes and new production methods that can generate innovative construction operations and building tectonics, while promoting forms of co-generation of habitats in harmony with the natural world.
Goals and perspectives
The Cluster’s research will be carried out by broadening and enriching the dialogue with skills and knowledge from different disciplinary fields such as ecology, sociology, anthropology, medicine, economics, philosophy and cybernetics. In this way, starting from the consolidated disciplinary skills acquired, we intend to outline a poly-competent research modality able to redefine its methods and goals and translate the results into operational and design tools according to a “design thinking”.
Keywords: Social Housing, ecology and quality of living, digital technologies, mass customization and architecture on demand, open building
