Edited by Dimitra Babalis. English text. Firenze, 2009; paperback, pp. 144, b/w and col. ill., cm 22x28. (Cities, design & sustainability series). To explore all factors of urban change in European cities it is necessary to understand how, politically and physically, is possible to tentatively reach positive scenarios for sustainable urban transformation. An understanding of the built environment and its evolution over time can better allow to respond to what is needed for designing a sustainable environment. Sustainability de_nition for urban change seems to be positive in relation to some key issues as: common intentions/ different themes/scale of intervention/heritage value/time-space-building. In thinking around these issues one should consider to give some answers and long-term solutions in sustainable planning and design. To learn afterwards how to design the transforming city with sustainability, considering heritage values, governmental and regulatory rules of site, depends more on designers' ethics rather on speci_c user's needs. Consequently, the sustainable change concerning urban development and regeneration should be based on: - An appraisal of tangible and intangible heritage values - A conscious reading of the physical transformation of sites and buildings through time - The conservation of historic pattern of urban areas and the maintenance of historic buildings - The well planned and integrated new development into the existing area and to the natural environment - The delivery of eco-sustainable design. This book is about to understand essential aspects of sustainable urban change, and especially investigates on the current quality of built environment of the transforming city. The book is divided into four parts in order to offer the reader source of information on urban change and lessons to be learnt from various contexts and experiences throughout Europe. It is an introductive contribution to contemporary city transformation but can stimulate the debate and re_ects the exchange of evolving ideas and experiences among academics of different European contexts. Throughout, the selection of material presented here the following chapters seek to identify urban transformation as context, chronos, culture value, scale, typology of intervention.
