Regeneration interventions of parts of the city where the new integrates or replaces the pre-existing structures, has little consideration and frequently disregard for the closely interconnected memory of places and the time factor. In reconstruction the project confronts itself with the pre-existence, the previous identity of the place for the recovery of material and immaterial heritage. It happens that the new project, bearer of an autonomous language, has a fast use, an immediate time. The new project overwrites the present and in re-attributing a value to the places does not consider the times of use, affection now stratified and the role of memory. Space is known in its identity, while contemporary intervention with respect to the consolidated has a weak time factor: a temporal displacement. The identity of the revisited, assimilated or redesigned project does not belong only to the artefact, but to the relations with the context in its broader meaning, in which ‘the one who lives the space’ emotionally recognizes the place as such, and establishes the relations as his own with the context. The many interpretations on how to explore space in architecture, which allowed us to consolidate the correlation between space and architecture, derive from the immediacy with which architecture is expressed as a ‘spatial thing’. Husserl1 conceives space as it was already defined by Plato in the Timaeus, that is, as having a nature that is neither intelligible nor sensitive, and that only can be known by ‘reasoning’, and we can also say from a ‘feeling’. Space does not manifest, it does not become phenomenal; there is no specific life of space, rather it is constituted together with things, together with the memory we have or that recurs in that particular space. Therefore, a reflection on the role of these factors in the relationship between theoretical thought and architectural design becomes necessary.
