The Indeterminacy of the Floor Plan is the first issue of the GENEROSITY series, dedicated to the design of collective housing. After the Density series, which warned about the importance of living in a compact and balanced environment, the new series is committed to the generosity of design.
Throughout the entire series, generosity translates into design strategies, identified as:
- Strategies of Indeterminacy: focused on enhancing spatiality and flexibility.
- Strategies of Exteriority: aimed at improving the relationship with the environment.
- Strategies of Privacy: whose objective is to build a protected and own place.
- Strategies of Interactivity: capable of promoting interrelation and cohesion between neighbours.
