Abstract

Three quarters of the European population is concentrated in cities, with urbanization continuing to grow at high speed. In contemporary cities, living is more and more based on “mobile lives”. Young people live a significant evolutionary dynamic phase characterized by increasing both experiences opportunities and uncertainties. Starting from the design of interiors, a reflection on the development of the urban context is needed to understand, encompass and balance the ongoing social transformations and the lifestyle evolution. The overlapping, contamination and fertilization between different architectural typologies and functional solutions as well as new using ways allows the development of a new system called hybrid spaces. The paper investigates the emerging topic of care, highlights its potential relevance for the future generations and outlines the contribution that design, with a specific focus on the interior design approach, can offer to post-industrial society.
