HOUSING MODELS DIVERSIFICATION TO SHAPE SUSTAINABLE URBAN SPACES
Sustainability has long become an essential objective in urban design. But what do we mean by “sustainability”? Which forms must be pursued to build sustainable urban spaces?
Many have answered that sustainability has the form of density. In fact, over the last twenty years, the cultural paradigm of sustainability has been almost inextricably tied to the notion of “density” and to some of its related attributes or phenomena, such as “contraction” and “compactness”. This process originated from the reflections on the now visible consequences of the unbalanced ratio between anthropic and natural components since the ‘60s and has introduced the need to refound the field of housing, including environmental care into the direct responsibilities of human action.
