An introduction: the need of a space for experimentation
The UOU scientific journal has been designed as a space to host reflection on topics linked to contemporary debates in Architecture that are at the center of the discourse on the education of future architects, made possible by the opportunities that have emerged from the experience of exchange between the European Universities on the question of the Internationalization of Teaching Architecture in a time of pandemic. In this sense, the research is a tool to reinforce the education, and the education acts as a testing tool and space for experimentation. The reflection on the notion of commons- included in this first issue- from now on will be enriched by the experience of pushing the limits of time and space and rethinking the notion of values in an innovative and unprejudiced way. For the reader of this Journal, the notion of Commons translated in our urban (and digital) environments, is to be conceived more as collective production of resources and spaces in general - material or immaterial - rather than with the resources themselves. This opens a reflection on the process of spatial organization in the relations between production, ownership and access to these resources, with an open eye on the effect of the Pandemic.
