Memory, emotions and everyday heritage in good architectural design practices

(The common spaces of daily life), Our daily landscapes of domesticity, once again vindicate their heritage value. This communication addresses these non-exceptional landscapes from the emotional facet of knowledge, a research niche to be explored in the architectural field. First, it offers a brief description of the development in the second part of the 20th century in the context of a reaction against the established values of modern urbanism: the situationists claim the value of the banal spaces of the historical city and recover its emotional components through embodied methodologies; Gordon Cullen worked on the assessment of complex urban landscapes; Jane Jacobs incorporated the social bottom-up participation; and John B. Jackson studied the territorial dimension in the subject’s experience. Secondly, it continues with the most recent advances in the recognition of the value of emotions in disciplines like Human Geography or Environmental Psychology. Third, it investigates its methodological correlation through the application of the concept of attachment to migratory processes and country-city exodus in two case studies related to two objectives: -To analyze the role of the memory of the previous daily landscape in the migratory processes from rural areas; -In contrast, to study the decisive factors of new host landscapes in the construction of emotional ties. The first case is approached through the work of geographer Jeffrey Smith, who has studied how attachment is manifested in the migratory processes of Hispanics in New Mexico and Colorado through the memory of the rural landscape. The second case is approached from the anthropological studies in the _re-HABITAR project for the social neighborhood El Carmen of Seville which allow studying attachment process through public spaces and neighborhood identity. To conclude, outdated situationist methodologies are compared with more recent ones focused on emotional knowledge of the heritage value of non-exceptional landscapes.
