Theory of Housing

  • Lecturers
    • Marc Collomb
    • Monica Sciarini
 

The course, intended as an introduction to housing, explores the theme of collective accommodation, from the organization of individual home units to their clustering, considering the various scales of living, from private to domestic to public-urban. In addition to offering some theoretical insights, it seeks to stimulate critical and personal views of the subject. Lectures deal with the history and culture of dwellings, types of housing and buildings, the organisation of spaces and functions, the relations between serving and served spaces, distribution systems, flexibility of use, density and urban form. Each topic is presented in its specifics and illustrated by numerous examples from different periods and geographical and cultural contexts.
