Abstract

The current economic situation produced disruptive consequences on population ways of living. To this, it has to be added the crisis of the duration, linked to the technological progress’ evolution, which led to a sudden regression of the existing building stock making necessary to act on it to reach for its adaption to standards, not only in regulatory terms. Therefore, the present contribution aims at define, through the development of a proposal for the Pilastro district in Bologna, a strategy to ease the interventions on such assets by means of the adoption of a temporary architecture, prototype of a new concept of urbanity, effective even for other purposes complementary to the redevelopment of existing buildings and suitable for different application contexts.
