Sustainability of compact cities: the SOS_UrbanLab activity



Urban development is facing new challenges to allow the evolution of the environment, in accordance to sustainability principles. In this context, decision makers have to answer to three main issues: how to intervene on the existing compact cities? How to combine and develop interventions on different scales? How to move from requalification to regeneration? The SOS_UrbanLab (Engineering Laboratory for Construction and Environmental Sustainability) researches, starting from a multi-scale analysis, propose a set of ecofriendly solutions to support the potential and capability of territories, integrating their benefits to reach a full sustainable approach.
