This research, based on a framework agreement between the Federico II University of Naples and HTWK Leipzig, commences with a theoretical reflection on public housing in Bipolar Europe during the Cold War. The aim is to set up innovative redevelopment and management processes, in which the potential offered by digitization can support the work of managing authorities and improve energy-environmental, space-functional and technological-constructive quality standards of the districts in question. The research involved experimenting with a Social openBIM workflow on a Leipzig case study owned by the LWB, a company interested in innovating its current asset management process.
