Camillo Boano wonders «Is there a minor project? And if it exists, how is it done?» in his book "Progetto Minore", produced thanks to his thoughts during the first period of the pandemic. That was when the arrogance of the design derived from determinism and bio-techno-scientism was manifested in all its violence and emptiness. The book’s author wonders if it is possible to practice a form of minority in the architectural and urban planning disciplines without "retiring" in other fields or contributing to the project’s decline. Through a wide and disparate variety of references, Boano suggests putting at the centre the incessant evolution of the generative process rather than the final product. Deriving them from the works of Agamben, Esposito and Mignolo, he proposes three declinations of minority: inoperative, institutional and decolonial. This reflection questions the nature of the suggested generative process and the breadth of the margins of a "designing subject".
Keywords: minority, becoming, design, negative, decolonial, inoperative.
