Starting from the etymology of the term resilience, from the Latin "resalio", iterative of "salio", which characterized the gesture of getting back on the boat turned upside down by the force of the sea, and therefore the ability to cope positively with negative events, we believe that the first step towards a reaction is to talk about it, creating a comparison of opinions, through the practice of participation (Architettura della Partecipazione, Giancarlo De Carlo). In this regard, in order to understand the effects that today's situation may have on the world of Architecture, we are collecting a series of reflections, stories, images and testimonies of the greatest interpreters of the places of living.
We asked to a selection of Architects, Designers, Artists, Sociologists and Photographers to share their point of view
"The extreme reality we are experiencing today leads us to re-evaluate the conventional ways of living, to appropriate the domestic space, and asks us questions about the extraordinary use of the spaces that we are "condemned" to live, highlighting them at the same time, the qualities and the critical issues. In the perspective of a supposed change, will it change? and if so, what will be the role of the architect? What will happen when we return to "normal" life? Will we treasure the reflections gained from this experience?"
