The recovery of the former University pediatric clinics in Cagliari: a project for the reuse, environmental redevelopment and structural and anti-seismic retrofitting of a modern building in a monumental centre



This paper discusses some of the issues related to the redevelopment of the modern building, with a rethink about the spaces consequent to the need to change its planned use that is structurally more burdensome and the related anti-seismic retrofitting. The case study concerns the project for the restoration and reuse of the former pediatric clinics of the University of Cagliari, according to an integrated method of intervention which, in the absence of historical documents, made it possible to reconstruct the material and structural characterisation of the building and its technical and constructional features.
