Communities in urban contexts and firms in corporate offices have recently started to implement collaborative spaces. Several authors from different disciplines are currently advancing knowledge in this realm. Systematizing this diverse knowledge base helps to advance our understanding of this novel phenomenon. To this end, the present work reviews 29 papers focusing on collaborative spaces. We analyse these papers in terms of contents, research methods, fields of study, authors’ background, and impact on the academic community. Grounding on this analysis, we outline new relevant research questions and opportunities for future investigations.

Il tema del risparmio energetico negli edifici è stato in questi anni oggetto di diversi interventi normativi da parte dell’UE e delle istituzioni del nostro paese. Questi interventi sono più che giustificati se consideriamo che circa il 40% dei consumi energetici e ben il 36% delle emissioni di gas serra è provocato dagli edifici (abitazioni, strutture commerciali, terziarie, produttive, ecc.).

Oggigiorno, nella metropoli europea a sviluppo molto più lento rispetto al passato industriale, con l’apertura delle frontiere determinata dalla globalizzazione, lo spostamento dell’economia dall’industria ai servizi e la necessità di contenere la straripante spesa pubblica, il problema urbano si manifesta con carattere di forte novità. I temi della sostituzione e della riqualificazione urbana assumono sempre maggiore importanza rispetto a improbabili processi di crescita espansiva. Il problema più rilevante sul piano urbanistico diviene quello della gestione del ricambio funzionale e della regolazione dei processi di riuso urbano e di adeguamento delle infrastrutture (metropolitane, tangenziali, aeroporti, reti ferroviarie e autostradali ecc.).

Il progetto si inserisce nell’ambito della gestione delle minacce climatiche e delle catastrofi naturali nei paesi in via di sviluppo. Ne è esempio il Mozambico, sede di approfondimento della ricerca, dove gli effetti negativi delle minacce climatiche sono amplificati dal basso livello di resilienza dell’ambiente costruito. Per il progresso del Paese e lo sviluppo del territorio le capacità di resilienza, adattabilità e trasformabilità assumono un ruolo fondamentale nei nuovi processi di previsione e progetto mirati al miglioramento dei sistemi insediativi. L’articolo illustra la sperimentazione applicativa di una metodologia di indagine ripetibile in contesti similari, volta a delineare una base conoscitiva per tracciare le possibili azioni migliorative nel rispetto dell’identità del luogo.

The text addresses the theme of renovating and reorganizing railway stations with a view to exploiting them as new urban centralities. The functional and morphological characteristics of railway stations and their accessibility off er great potential for investment as well as for the enhancement of the urban fabric in which they are embed-ded. There is a particular and unique relationship between railway areas and cities, and the way that the regeneration and redevelopment of the stations can contribute to the improvement of the cities them-selves. The railway lines into the centres of the main urbanized areas often constitute a sort of “edge, an urban void” which if developed, can become an important resource not only as a place of interchange, but al-so as a driver for the urban revitalization of the context, and to connect the urban fabric on each side of the railway area. The redevelopment of these areas with the creation of new retail spaces, launches projects that reor-ganize not only the spaces dedicated to urban or extraurban mobility, but entire districts which had previously been fragmented and sometimes degraded by the presence of the railway. In addressing the topic, the main characteristics of these new commercial spaces will be analysed as tools for development and as investment attractors.

Both the Russian and Italian governments are currently promoting a business-oriented ap-proach for the management of cultural heritage and the cooperation between public and private parties. The comparison of the adopted management models could foster the ex-change of knowledge between the two different countries, recognize the weak and strength aspects of the governance and identify which can be appropriate solutions for each specific context. The proposal tries to demonstrate that these policies can support the conservation and valorization of the built cultural heritage, encouraging an holistic approach in sustaina-ble development from the economic, social, environmental and cultural perspectives.

The interest of Construction investors towards Data Centres is a novelty that however is not supported by an adequate level of knowledge of the technical characteristics that distinguish this particular building type. In fact, these are complex buildings, which are rarely dealt with in the literature (real estate and construction) and very different from the typical asset class of the real estate market, for which it requires a very high level of specialization. From an investor’s point of view, although there are some reference standards that define some minimum quality standards, we need to widen our attention, focusing on all the technical / technological factors that influence the business model. The paper deals with this problem, trying to identify the different elements that influence the risk profile of the investment (thus omitting risk factors of another kind) and structuring them in clusters. Specifically, the paper focuses on the cost factors (passive cycle of the business model) that accompany the investment or the real estate asset “data centres” in its life cycle.

“S[m2]ART, looking at the city by metro” is an industrial and development research project funded by the MIUR under Smart Cities and Communities and Social Innovation projects on social inclusion and welfare and security topics. Politecnics of Turin and Milan are partners of the project together with Telecom Italia (coordinator), Reply, Metalco, Thema Progetti Group and an ICT company of the ICT industry. The project aims at experimenting with a scalable system of smart urban furnishings, integrated into the city as a network “node”, offering innovative services to the inhabitants and at the same time providing the municipal administration with a network of sensors capable of monitor phenomena and dynamics of the urban environment. The role of the research group within the project was to define specific contributions in two areas: the definition of innovative services to be delivered to citizens through S[m2]ART urban furnishings and the definition of requirements relating to the sustainability of materials and materials technologies for the construction and furnishing of furniture. The paper presents the results of the research, describing, in particular, the involvement and collaboration between stakeholders (public administration and end users) and industrial partners. The research results are the framework for the definitive and executive design of intelligent urban furniture that could be installed and monitored later in the cities of Turin and Milan.

The idea of Smart and Sustainable are trending topics in the current literature. The idea of Resilience is for sure a component to be considered in the design of modern cities. This paper, after having considered the state of the art, analyses the relationships and the evolution of the idea of smart, sustainable and the possible evolution of the topics connected with Resilience in the smart sustainable city. The paper considers the strong link between the sectors of Science that are considering Resilience as a part of their current research, reading the components of it according to the Architectonic paradigms. The definition of the role of the modern Architect and of the modern Architecture in connection with the other disciplines is a core part of the publication. The framework of the document is the definition of the potential of interaction of the figure of the Architect with the other scientists in a pervasive set of theories that affect the modern city. The paper defines also the idea that is not fully considered the impact on the Urbanism, traditionally led by Architects, of the IT technologies on the built environment. Opportunities and treats deriving from a not-governed set of processes linked to the Urban areas.

Capital construction of residential buildings for the purpose of subsequent rent is gaining more and more widespread in the western countries. In Russia, in particular in St. Petersburg, this form of business is just emerging. Due to relevance of this industry, the question of selection the most suitable site for construction arises. The article proposes the solution site-selection case basing on existing methods of territorial analysis, as well as provides examples of application of the obtained databases in the conditions of a narrowly formulated problem. The main tools in the analysis are the calculations of the shares of employment, location quotient and the Hirschman-Herfindahl Index. The mechanisms of solving three types of problems are given, depending on the nature of the input information due to the study of the correspondence between the properties of the object under construction and the urban territories. The theory is formulated on the example of a large city Saint Petersburg and is more suitable for large agglomerations with a population of more than a million people.

The text refers to the smart city and the global housing emergency that manifests itself in in the great metropolitan areas. Particularly, it focuses on the need of temporary residences and illustrate a new design approach that involves redevelopment of unused buildings because they are obsolete and no longer meet market needs. The concept is based on Corporate Social Responsibility which directs towards a circular economy model and involves the “People-Planet-Profit” and “Happiness of Happiness” principles in a sustainable way through the humanization of the Smart Energy Grid Buildings. The recovery of existing buildings with zero land consumption is in line and in compliance with the provisions of the European Directives PON GOVERNANCE and PON SMART CITY, PTR L.R. n. 28 of 28/11/2014, which foresee by 2020 to reduce soil consumption by 25-30%. The modules are smart, inclusive and sustainable environments with home automation equipment, advanced manufacturing and ICT support for the integration of smart systems and IOT (Internet of Things). The synergy between recovery and reuse of the existing building, combined with a infrastructure with a digital interface (building automation), wants to guarantee the principles of inclusion, safety, wellness, health, eco-sustainability, smart supply chain. It will be illustrated the model that foresees the scheduling of an operative protocol for building recovery and functional adaptation of the internal layout to new needs, centralized and advanced management. The innovative aspects are increased by the management model of the property, facility and of the services to the person that obliges to rethink the entire building process from planning to construction and management with a systemic approach.

The sports facility represents the home of the fan, the symbolic place that connects citizenship to sport. The function of the stadiums is therefore of primary importance, representing the point of reference for millions of people who dedicate their time to their favourite team every week. It is essential to adapt these systems to the needs of the fan, focusing on the services dedicated to him. Every citizen should have, in fact, the right to watch sports performances in modern, usable, comfortable and above all safe environments. The ability to be able to guarantee such a scenario, especially in an extremely delicate economic moment, is closely connected to the creation of state-of-the-art sports facilities or the modernization of existing facilities, which often appear obsolete and crumbling in the Italian scenario. The planning, construction and management of a new generation of sports infrastructures for football can allow the growth of the business linked to the revenues from tenders, thus succeeding in diversifying the revenues of Italian clubs currently too tied to the revenues deriving from television rights. The transition from the “cost system” model to that of the “revenue system” is one of the main goals still to be achieved by the Italian sports system. In recent years, there have been many factors that have slowed down this transition phase, starting with the complexity and length of the bureaucratic procedures required for implementing the various projects, as well as the actual difficulty for private and public stakeholders to invest in sports facilities. This article is a summary of the most important experiences in Italy with regard to the development and construction of sports facilities resulting from the encounter between the world of Real Estate and sports clubs in the various disciplines. In particular, the article analyses the technical, economic and financial arrangements that have made it possible to implement the projects, and the main problems that have been encountered. The article focuses on the comparison of some of the most important initiatives carried out at the European level in the field of improving sports facilities, with particular regard to the revenues generated by the stadium (subscriptions, catering, etc.) and the regulatory aspects (Stability Law 2014).
