Housing and inhabiting are pressing issues in the face of changes in our way of life as a result of technological and technical innovations. Housing is a functional and cultural item that reproduces relationships, phenomenologies and effects typical of the social fabric that generates it. Thus, “dwelling” (habitar) is a concept that has changed over time, patently following the positions, rhythms, meanings and desires of societies. This publication attempts to create a dialogue in contributions from various disciplinary fields. It aims to foster an inclusive critical reflection, capable of activating a deeper reflection based on the observation of our current society focused on neoliberalism, hedonism and apparently free and massified comfort.
