  INTERIOR SPACES FOR LAZE: A LOOK INTO PORTUGUESE DOMESTIC IN THE LATE TWENTIETH CENTURY MARIA RITA_PAIS 1*   1  Architecture Department, Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, * mariaritapais@gmail.com    ABSTRACT   Interiority is the space for reverie  (Bachelard, 1960) and for one of the most important activities of life: laze. Home privacy allows inhabitants to be in the most easeful and unique way, and so, leisure spaces or spaces for laze are one of the most interesting spaces to understand. Despite the majority of the studies concentrate their understanding in more functional spaces, spaces for laze are one of the fundamentals for human balance. Idleness or absenteeism are essential to men in the sense that is the time it allows encouragement of personality and knowledge. When ancient greeks and Romans develop mens sana in corpora sano , they believe that time without physical activity, produce mental or reflective activity. This paper propose to present an analysis of laze and idleness importance to men and comprehend the influence of this “activity” in home interior spaces. Spatiality related to idleness happens especially since the '20s, after the First Great World War. This war  brought a more consciousness of individual. realised in a major sense of leisure, intimacy and enjoyment. The houses have changed. But how? Through the study of single-family house in the second half of the twentieth century designed by portuguese architects (sample with 226 examples), this paper shows an evolution of mentality and interior space design dedicated to idleness and leisure. The evolution tends to more versatile spaces, but goes through some steps to come to this point. This spaces where subdued to social and representative home spaces.  Keywords: interiority, architecture, laze, leisure spaces, evolution 1. INTRODUCTION 2. LAZE 2.1. Laze and the individual 2.2.
