"Houses beyond-the-threshold" is a project that has seen the transformation of public housing ‘under threshold’ flats in the Calvairate district of Milan into living spaces for unaccompanied foreign minors, guided in a self-recovery path of the apartment they would have lived until becoming 18. The project introduces an idea of welcoming based on reciprocity, within a cultural operation that keeps together the architectural space with site-specific artistic works created for each of the apartments. An unprecedented model of encounter between art, architecture, urban and social disciplines is outlined considering inhabiting beyond the threshold as an answer to the need of a shelter. By trigging new forms of relationship between migrants and inhabited space, the project suggests to urban planning a perspective to deal with transitoriness as an issue that increasingly characterizes the contemporary city.
