Abstract

In this paper we propose an integrated urban-building evaluation approach based on a socio-ecological interpretation of the built environment. Rather than exclusively emphasising the minimisation of impacts, it aims at supporting sustainable regenerative urban design processes. Operatively, it assesses the reliability of an action, which is intended as a mutual resilience between the urban environment and a building. Its focus on the assessment of reliability improves our ability to design spatially sensitive sustainable built environments. Thus structured, our urban-building integrated evaluation approach reassigns to evaluation its role as a support to learning processes in designing the sustainability in the city
