This lexicon aims at interpreting the concept of ‘Territorial Fragilities’ toward different approaches. Abandonment, Accessibility, Adaptation, Connection, Housing, Landscape, Narrative, Peripheries, Policies, Prototyping, Regeneration, Segregation, Shrinkage and Welfare, are different points of view that open to design directions and strategies to work on territorial fragilities. Material and immaterial fragilities are linked to: lack, poorness or obsolescence of existing building and infrastructure, changes in social structure, emerging individual needs. After a theoretical introduction, the headwords will present different tactics that may lead to the construction of ‘thick description’ as well as furnish guidelines for more effective design and policies to manage territorial fragilities.
Keywords: Territorial fragilities; interpretation; design strategies
