The book explores future design actions to address the challenges, factors, and trends influencing the liveability of tomorrow’s cities.

As a result of climate change, cities are experiencing increasingly complex challenges that heavily impact people's living conditions, health, and well-being. It is only in recent times that an increase of social awareness about the correlation between the increase in anthropic-generated emissions and the rise in global temperatures has been recorded, primarily resulting from evidence-based demonstrations by the scientific community.

The book “Architectures for EU Next Generation Cities – Challenges, Key Drivers and Research Trends”, edited by Italian publishing house Franco Angeli, attempts to provide an overview of the primary factors influencing the evolution of European urban environments and their needs, while keeping an eye on the possible fallout on local policies – both within the EU and beyond – as well as global trends.

Four priority topics are discussed: city resilience, the energy demand of cities and buildings, future needs, and the potential for applying circular models.

As Jacopo Gaspari – Associate Professor at the Architecture Department at the University of Bologna and coauthor of the book - said, "This book is not a final destination but rather a starting point for future design actions to address the challenges, factors, and trends influencing the liveability of tomorrow's cities".
An entire section of this book, titled “Factors influencing the social perceptions and choices towards circular renovation in the housing sector”, is dedicated to the Houseful project.

In this chapter, the Houseful partners alchemia-nova, WE&B, Neues Leben, and Agencia de l’Habitatge de Catalunya offer a multidisciplinary field of investigation, dealing with social and behavioral aspects related to energy use and circular solution in the residential sector, with specific reference to Houseful project.

The book is available in open access: https://series.francoangeli.it/index.php/oa/catalog/view/892/735/5208.

The Houseful Consortium wants to thank prof. Jacopo Gaspari for this opportunity. Special thanks also to Licia Felicioni, from University of Bolgona, for the valuable dialogue made in these last months in the preparation of this book.

Testimonials

For well over a decade, in my capacity as a researcher, broadcaster, and producer, I have relied heavily on Alphagalileo.
All of my work trips have been planned around stories that I've found on this site.
The under embargo section allows us to plan ahead and the news releases enable us to find key experts.
Going through the tailored daily updates is the best way to start the day. It's such a critical service for me and many of my colleagues.
Koula Bouloukos, Senior manager, Editorial & Production Underknown
We have used AlphaGalileo since its foundation but frankly we need it more than ever now to ensure our research news is heard across Europe, Asia and North America. As one of the UK’s leading research universities we want to continue to work with other outstanding researchers in Europe. AlphaGalileo helps us to continue to bring our research story to them and the rest of the world.
Peter Dunn, Director of Press and Media Relations at the University of Warwick
AlphaGalileo has helped us more than double our reach at SciDev.Net. The service has enabled our journalists around the world to reach the mainstream media with articles about the impact of science on people in low- and middle-income countries, leading to big increases in the number of SciDev.Net articles that have been republished.
