Building in the built: integration issues
Each historic-city rehabilitation issue involves the “facing of old and new”, opening a discussion about compatibility, spatial and functional problems, architectural and town planning topics. This point requires special attention to the operational intervention procedures and methods, which must express both historical values and current needs. The topic focuses on “how” to build in a historical urban environment, where co-existence and mutual relationship are needed. Basically, a unified approach, and a project able to interpreting the identity of places, are crucial; that is a diversified planning activity, based on the strictness of judgment. The strictness of judgment have to guide the entire project that, aimed at building in a built environment, should investigate the relationship between the so called “text” and “context”, examining the new-ancient binomial, then verifying the dialectic between the measures aimed at provide continuity and those at changing.
