Site-specific circular methodology for the resilience of existing districts: the Green City Circle

Saveria Olga Murielle Boulanger, Marco Marcatili


The paper aim is to describe the major findings of a PhD research having the objective of defining and developing an instrument (Green City Circle) for the design of existing urban districts, through a circular approach and with the point of view of resilience and energy efficiency. The research approach is multi-disciplinary, aiming to evaluate both risk resilience and slower processes on an eco-systemic perspective. The paper aims to reflect upon these questions by deepening the study of a set of Key Performance Indicator and of alternative scenarios composition. The instrument’s target has been selected into local public bodies as major enablers of local regeneration.
