Abstract

The paper identifies appropriate design strategies of urban open space re-use that operate according to the logic of mitigation and adaptation and that allow the conservation and redevelopment of natural resources in the area and the connection between ecological and environmental values for an overall enhancement of the built environment. The re-use of urban open spaces focused on activation of new processes of functional, environmental and social reconnection, well satisfies some needs that can be traced back to the thorny issue of safety and, in general, to the improvement of the quality of life. In particular, the following considerations start from the idea of reconstructing the relations between the natural and built environment through a “productive” development of the territory and they share the interest for environmentally friendly technologies use. The paper also will show design proposal in contexts characterized by specific critical social and technological-environmental issues. The re-use strategies, the natural and landscape reconfiguration, the usability in general are all closely related aspects to achieving a renewed ecological-environmental quality of the territory as a whole.
