In the 1950s, in an important and innovative period of Milanese architecture, Enzo Paci dedicated about ten essays to architecture, deriving from his friendly relationships a real research on architectural thought. This article shows that he is elaborating a phenomenological and relational conception of the Lebenswelt: in this philosophical perspective, he considers the city as an ideal type in which a harmonious whole of relationships takes shape. The architecture is not mere structure, but the expression of a coexistence in free intentional relationships immersed in concrete life.
