Section 6 | Living Bodies

City is a complex organism made by people's interactions.
Everyone is different from another,  for cultural issues, sexual preferences, age, religion, biography. The human bodies, diverse for their necessities are interacting in the urban reality, the daily experiences in the same city can be completely diverse if the experiencer is men, women, children, elderly people or disable. City is the environment of our life and relationships.
Everyone has its special and specific map of the space of the city, based on his or her relationship with the space and his or her idea about inhabiting. It is very useful for planners and for people in general explore the relationships between body, architecture, and the city.

In the session  “Living bodies” we tried to answer some questions: what it means to plan and design an accessible, welcoming city, open to everyone in every moment of life? What it means to plan spaces made for differences? How is it changing the story of the city through the emerging of new cultural and  social groups?
We tried to do it by exploring theoretical implications and disciplinary thoughts, by recognizing new urban exigences and differences and new urban perceptions. The aim was to suggest and to individuate new languages that let emerge the bodies and the relative new urban questions and answers connected to the bodies.
