A technological approach to design for sensitive contexts
Keywords:built environment, technological approach, adaptability, sensitive contexts, eco-oriented design
The paper makes several considerations on a technological approach to design in sensitive contexts, in which the strategic objective is linked to the aspects related to the control of eco-oriented transformations of the environment. The Authors, by using investigation/design methodologies and tools, present some didactic experiences carried out during courses and workshops within the ICAR 12 sector, with the aim of highlighting, not only the critical issues with respect to the themes identified but also, the connection with the scientific activity developed on the theme of the redevelopment of open urban spaces.
