The dissolution of the traditional block of houses in the sense of a constitutive building unit is determining a new urban organisation which is radically modifying the dialectic between residence and public space in cities. Buildings are becoming reiterable volumes within neighbourhoods and free space is being emptied of its specific traits. We are passing from a logic on the basis of which every space is assigned a particular character recognised by practice to a settlement principle, the key words of which are rhythm, intervals and repeatability. Architectural and urban design intends to take note of the hidden sense of the daily landscapes of mediocrity and seek new ways of living, uses and up-to-date categories which give shape to open relationships capable of tracing transformative process at public ground level.
Keywords: Urban block; neighbourhood; ground
