This paper poses a few questions concerning the definition of a working agenda on which people can agree for the launch of the new Department of Architecture and Urban Studies of the Polytechnic of Milan. The following issues are proposed for general consideration: a revisitation of the research programme and disciplinary paradigms in relation to the profound crisis experienced by the country, Europe and the entire world; the connections between our areas of research and the technological change that is affecting towns, cities and regions; the interpretation of relationships between space and society by enhancing theoretical thinking and focusing on everyday living practices; the development of research programmes that are attentive both to governance tools and forms and how they interrelate with planning activities and the economic context and also to planning devices and the implementation and assessment of urban and regional policies.
