In post-industrial cities, the need to redefine a new balance between land use and psycho-physical wellbeing, to limit the consumption of soil, energy, built and natural heritage drives design research toward the reuse and regeneration of abandoned urban spaces, often characterized by stratified memories. The purpose of this collection is to revive the valuable thought of Roberto Pane, who first focused on the psychological and ecological instance in preservation, reaffirmed the fundamental role of memory and beauty as necessary dimensions of individual and collective wellbeing. From his legacy, transdisciplinary confluence of interior architecture, spatial design and behavioural neuroscience constitutes at present a powerful response to the widespread demand for organism-centred design processes and for places consistent with psychological, emotional, and social needs. The first session, Time and Beauty, includes contributions in which history and preservation confront aesthetic aspects, indispensable components of the preservation debate. In the second session, Psyche and Places, reflections on immaterial aspects confront the dimension of physical space. In the third session, Space and Memory, design culture, often synonymous with innovation, is challenged by the theme of memory.
