The Transformation Potential of the Single-family House
One of the most urgent and yet overlooked themes in architectural and urban research is the retrofitting of extensive residential territories dominated by single-family houses, generally built for the middle classes in the second half of the 20th century. Although living in a dispersed territory represents a consolidated practice based upon apparently natural architectural forms, urbanization processes and cultures of inhabitation, current circumstances in many territories call for a rethinking of this housing stock.
The symposium places the single-family house at the centre of attention, bringing together practice and theory, its potential transformation in relation to emergent uses, economic and demographic trends, but also future scenarios consistent with the socio-ecological agenda embodied by the NextGenerationEU and Green Deal programs.
