Abstract

The rapid and profound transformation that the city is subject to leads to the urgency of restarting a debate on the relationship between habitat and public space to orient the community on future transformations. Since the postwar period, the theme of the relational component of the habitat has been the subject of the last CIAM that have seen a group of young architects come together under the name of TEAM X. A new approach aimed at the potential of public space in terms of connection, interaction and exchange with the community, distances itself from the functionalist model and transforms the modern city into a territory open also to the experimentation of the temporary project, able to trigger creative, formal or informal processes in often disused urban contexts. In this framework, which overcomes the dialectic between form and function, is inserted the experimentation of the Amsterdam playgrounds that reads the city for microspaces in which the potential of abandoned spaces is confronted with the ways of use of the community. The temporary nature of architecture is now another opportunity to experience new habitats, in synergy with communities and local authorities, to elaborate design ideas and acquire a renewed awareness of the potential of open spaces within a map of places to grasp the real differently, overturn preconceptions and open dizzying and unexpected rediscoveries of accessible space.
