This Symposium spreads up from the idea to match two topics, both clearly central issues for next decade worldwide politics: the matter of housing, generally faced up with just welfare rather than structural interventions, and existing buildings recovering, in terms of architectural and urban quality, safety, efficiency and inclusiveness.
It’s promoted by a team of researchers from Architecture Department of Roma Tre University, to collect and discuss contributions by scholars, professionals, experts and workers in the not-for-profit sector about cohousing programs and fulfilment, dealing with existing buildings.

Space sharing in residential realm is a common practise in Nord European countries; on the contrary, practices of aged building recovering is more diffuse in Mediterranean tradition. We can achieve many interesting investigation opportunities finally interlacing both themes.
“Cohousing. Programs and projects to recover heritage buildings” is a chance to have an exchange of views and for divulgation, with the aim to enlarge knowledge about these two main topics. It intends to open a field of confrontation about practices as well realized or planned interventions, calling speakers of international fame in an open plenum to deal with matters connected with every steps of building process (planning, design, building, management).
