The challenge today is to promote resilient cities, capable of functioning even after catastrophic events. In the case of historical neighbourhoods, the problem is extremely complex because of the necessity to preserve historical values. This project aims to develop an urban modeling tool that compares different retrofit scenarios in terms of environmental (LCA) and economic costs (LCC). The intent is to propose a tool accessible to both designers and city managers to evaluate the smartest retrofit considering environmental and capital investments. The research is interdisciplinary. It embraces structural and urban resiliency and building technology optimization.
