One of the main problems of the house that in recent decades have intertwined reflections design and theorical, but generally of all technological systems, is the risk of becoming technically or functionally obsolete. This is partly due to the fact that interventions on housing construction, oriented themselves toward the Optimal Point logic Design (OPD), which is to achieve a single goal, living in the more traditional sense of the term, thinning out therefore all the capabilities that are not required to comply with those specific features. As a result, once removed excess potentialities to improve the main goal of the system, this results rigid towards new tasks. It is obvious, that in the building sector, the inability to handle the uncertainty of social and economic context, the changing needs of users and environmental, tends to make the system obsolete and to reduce its useful life. If flexibility is the ability of a system to be easily modified and to respond to changes in the environment in a timely and convenient, then the flexibility can be considered the antidote to obsolescence, or the characteristicof the system that guarantees slippage over time. The paper provides a critical assessment in the implementation of the requirement of flexibility starting on four lines of action in which it is possible to classify projects which throughout history, have integrated the flexibility in the design of house: Spatial Flexibility with constant surface, spatial Flexibility evolutionary, technological Flexibility relating to construction techniques, technological Flexibility concerning the plant maintainability. The research therefore proposes the project strategies, cross- cutting to these four-way directions, aimed at ensuring the survival over time of the building, thanks to the ability to implement several cycles of use of body building, confront the ability to reconfigure the internal structure and intervene in a simplified way on the technological system that governs the space.
