looking for a place

We all have the right to a decent & healthy house, a place where we can feel safe and protected. This need must be guaranteed not only at home, but also for everybody whether visiting a place for tourism or hosting people coming from elsewhere, like immigrants & refugees. Taking responsibility about the place we live in or we are looking for, also implies a respectful and efficient approach in terms of mobility. On the other side, ethic and aesthetic have become more and more linked together. ecodesign defines this relationship well: in recent years more and more designers switched from just conceiving nice objects to eco-socially committed projects. And houses, of course, have often been the starting point for this little ‘revolution’.
