Abstract

The paper shows the first results of a research leaded in the Department of Architecture of Roma Tre University, that aims to develop guidelines for the inclusive design of housing for an ageing society, and more generally for fragile users, that apply augmented reality technologies within domestic ecosystems. The world population is ageing: in 2017, the over60s were 962 million, twice as many as in 1980 and half as many as in 2050. Those over80s will triple, from 137 to 425 million people (United Nations, 2017). Furthermore, 15% of the world population is affected by one or more kind of disability and one fifth of them suffer from a severe disability. Finally, by 2035, growth forecast estimates a 50% increase trend (WHO, 2011; World Bank, 2018). These categories compose a complex system defined as “fragile users”. In this way, it is identified a category of people suffering from condition of latent or manifest vulnerability, associated with a growing risk of a full-blown permanent or temporary disability (Magarò and Baratta, 2019). In Italy, the social issue is characterized by poor inclusion and lack of awareness in planning: therefore, architects are called to define strategic policies about the design of integrated and interconnected housing, able to improve the quality of life of fragile users, within their usual environment (Magarò et al. 2019). In this way, it is possible to procrastinate hospitalization, to favour the caregiver’s action and to reduce social costs (Formica and Magarò, 2018). Articulating the meaning of “Augmented Domestic Ecosystems”, this paper focuses on the selection of those principles of cognitive ergonomics needed to implement the technological transfer of augmented reality from the ICT world to safe and inclusive housing for fragile users.
