Un’architettura per e con le persone

Alessandro Rigolon

Abstract


L’articolo propone un approccio umanistico al progetto architettonico, ponendo le persone al centro del processo di concezione. Comprendere il modo in cui lo spazio influenza il comportamento, le emozioni e le attività delle persone dovrebbe essere il punto di partenza del progetto. Ciò implica una riflessione sui mezzi con i quali lo spazio trasmette significati connotativi e denotativi. Le tecniche per raccogliere informazioni dagli utenti e per includere tali informazioni nel progetto sono state analizzate per evidenziare i vantaggi e i problemi del mettere in pratica tale approccio umanistico. La discussione finale è focalizzata sulla possibile perdita di autonomia del progettista, sulla tempistica dell’introduzione dei dati derivati dagli utenti e sulle conseguenze dell’inclusione di tali dati nelle normali pratiche progettuali.
