This book presents the most updated developments of design research in the form of six dialogues between scholars of the Politecnico di Milano and international scholars. Each dialogue focuses on a specific topic recently addressed on the Politecnico di Milano's PhD programme: the role of users, social innovation, fashion design, colour design, interaction design and urban design. Heterotopic cities. Heterotopias, “those spaces which have the particular characteristic of being connected to all other spaces, but in such a way as to suspend, neutralise or invert the set of relationships which they designate, reflect or mirror” Michel Foucault. Towns and cities today stand concretely at the centre of a phenomenon of unforeseen development, in terms of dimensions, importance and reasons. They are becoming ever more diffuse and de-structured, bearers of different citizenships, each of which representative of a part of a complex multiethnic society, combined, by contrast, with an increasing lack of identification with the physical space occupied, a space which tends to be changing increasingly or even actually virtual. The 21st century sets really the scene for a profound and radical change in the way people live and will be the era of cities. The territorial sphere, which is undergoing profound metamorphosis, provides design with a field for experimentation with great potential. By freely facing challenges and imbuing itself in its work with the languages of architecture, art, communication sciences, urban planning, landscape design and territorial marketing – with an extremely full exchange of composition grammars and behavioural responses – spatial design can carry through a concrete revolution in the dynamics of the design of the other spaces (heterotopic spaces).

Abstract

This book presents the most updated developments of design research in the form of six dialogues between scholars of the Politecnico di Milano and international scholars. Each dialogue focuses on a specific topic recently addressed on the Politecnico di Milano's PhD programme: the role of users, social innovation, fashion design, colour design, interaction design and urban design. Heterotopic cities. Heterotopias, “those spaces which have the particular characteristic of being connected to all other spaces, but in such a way as to suspend, neutralise or invert the set of relationships which they designate, reflect or mirror” Michel Foucault. Towns and cities today stand concretely at the centre of a phenomenon of unforeseen development, in terms of dimensions, importance and reasons. They are becoming ever more diffuse and de-structured, bearers of different citizenships, each of which representative of a part of a complex multiethnic society, combined, by contrast, with an increasing lack of identification with the physical space occupied, a space which tends to be changing increasingly or even actually virtual. The 21st century sets really the scene for a profound and radical change in the way people live and will be the era of cities. The territorial sphere, which is undergoing profound metamorphosis, provides design with a field for experimentation with great potential. By freely facing challenges and imbuing itself in its work with the languages of architecture, art, communication sciences, urban planning, landscape design and territorial marketing – with an extremely full exchange of composition grammars and behavioural responses – spatial design can carry through a concrete revolution in the dynamics of the design of the other spaces (heterotopic spaces).
