Buildings as an urban risk factor

Roberto Castelluccio


Due to the risk exposure of urban centers, built in dystonia with the environmental context, it is necessary to implement territorial development policies which consider risk analysis as an essential condition for planning. The innovative approach proposed by the D.I.C.E.A. for the drafting of the Emergency Plan of the Municipality of Pozzuoli, considered the residential system as a further intrinsic risk factor, determined by the buildings characteristics and by the relationship with the urban environment. As an experiment the Building Vulnerability Charter was created to define critical areas, in which priority should be given to strategic planning of interventions aimed at increasing urban resilience.
