If the space we live in today is well designed, we can then live our lives to the full. As Heidegger concept states, architecture and the environment unite building, living and thinking.
-Over the centuries the figure of the architect has undergone a series of important modifications.
-If we look at the etymological root of the word, i.e. the Greek term which describes his function as an “organizer of builders,” we see just how much things have changed nowadays.
-We can also say that at a geographical level, in the world, there are different nuances (more or less accentuated) with regard to the new role that this figure ought to play.
-It seems clear that the extreme specialization of the various supply chains of the building industry in the American (and in general Anglo-Saxon) world is not matched by a similar specialization in the construction sector in the Mediterranean region (including Italy).
-It is as if there was a tendency, in this part of the world, to see the activity of the architect as a direct legacy of the workshops of the master’s active at the dawn of Modernity, i.e. in the Renaissance.
