Inclusivity is a key theme in the contemporary debate on public space design. The problem is that, even in front of a clear political will, the architectural culture is not able to face this issue with clear and specific design approaches. On the contrary, from this point of view, major advancements have been achieved by a part of urban planning, with the disciplinary translation of the concept of trading zone. For this reason, in the hypothesis of a further translation, the article focuses on the habitability of urban open spaces, in order to understand which architectural shapes are able to trigger the same processes of inclusion and to open a new perspective on the necessary strategies and tools to build a more open and adaptable space
