Abstract

The sustainable renewal of social housing can only be tackled nowadays with the help of design strategies which are able to deal with and coordinate three key issues: the transformation of housing requisites, the deployment of new operational and financial models for carrying out interventions, and the optimization of energy and material resources. The Social Housing cluster was set up a few months ago in the SITdA to coordinate multi-disciplinary research projects exploring the economic, social and environmental feasibility of experimental interventions designed to upgrade the existing built heritage in the light of the most recent energy standards, while at the same time responding to the new housing requisites emerging in the various regional contexts throughout Italy.
