Today we live in a historical period in which we demand that man adapt to live in ready-made homes.

We have established a housing model and we design and build more or less articulated parallelepipeds, which contain standard apartments, as if they were cars or furniture elements to be built in series.

In short, man must adapt to a ready-made model proposed by the designer or builder, according to the thought and the way of conceiving a dwelling of the designer. The designer composes elements, walls, so as to form spaces, in which to place this or that environment according to your taste, as if in that apartment he had to live there himself.

The Devastating Wave

Decadentism between technology and knowledge

There is no longer the concept of designing and building for a certain person, according to his tastes, according to his way of living spaces.

The designer should design and design spaces for each individual person, as if it were a dress. Indeed, the house or dwelling of a certain person represents for the same a dress, in which to move and live. If the dress is too tight, the movements of the arms, legs, or even the twists of the body cause tears to the dress and the person feels intolerant, as well as if the dress is too big.

Man, therefore, must not adapt to the ready-made environments proposed to him, but must seek and demand a dwelling that suits his personal way of life, as if this were a dress or shoes. Moreover, we would never buy shoes that are too big or too small for our feet, because we would not be able to walk.

The designer must design his projects according to the way of life of the person who must live. It must also design according to where to build. Since places, the public spaces of daily life represent the external dwelling of people, they must be designed and built, not made, on a human scale. Places must be transformed in such a way that man can live in harmony with the spaces designed and built for this to happen.

Today, unfortunately, this does not happen. We live in places and public spaces derived from designs of buildings ready-made containers.

The manufacturer’s motto is to obtain as many square meters as possible, because in this way their economic gain is increasing. No matter the beauty, functionality or harmony of the places, there important is sell.

The intolerance of man in our society stems from this: from pre-packaged and mass-built designs and from public and private spaces obtained, that is, the space that remains from palace to palace.

History should have given lessons in Architecture on the way of living and inhabiting a place, then designing in function of the same and the people who must live that particular place.

If a designer fails in his studio to transform the place making it habitable he has failed his task.

Society must wake up and demand constructions that adapt to its own way of life and according to its own taste.

Just as the competent bodies of each municipality must implement the urban development plan, which must be drawn up in a serious manner, privileging the taste and habitability not only private, but especially public, granting concessions or building permits only if they meet the above criteria.

The identity crisis of a civil society is seen above all by the signs of the cities, which they themselves live in daily life.
