Design for commons regeneration
The commons regeneration passes through a direct involvement of groups of people who usually intertwine with spaces with a high grade of proximity, aiming at improving the overall quality of life and experiences connected. This process starts from an increased consciousness towards places that are not belonging to the private realm but are public or potentially to be used by the civic society. Revealing commons means being aware of the potentialities of these “hidden places” to connect not only people with them but people among themselves creating a sense of community and ownership before unknown. How do design relates to this process, the relation between time of the involvement and effectiveness of the result, which impact at short and long term have these interventions, the legacy of the regeneration including failure and success will be presented in this speech, even by showing best practices developed by the Polimi DESIS Lab in the city of Milan and its surroundings.
