Abstract

The spread of digital technologies, aimed at improving the effectiveness of the technological and environmental project proposals, has transformed the modus operandi of architects and designers who approach environmental impact assessment, especially about public space designs. Research activities aim to collect any guideline aimed to the sustainable regeneration of public spaces, focusing on the effectiveness of the performance of individual actions proposed (greening, implementation of urban facilities, choice of specific materials, etc.) by gradually checking and fixing the convenient benchmark design asked, by normative requirements and sometimes by technological and building best-practices widely consolidated even on scientific basis. Early design optimization process relies on the combined use of appropriate IT tools for environmental control, but also on the interoperability of these systems with the traditional modelling tools for outdoor and indoor spaces. According to data-design-oriented logic, has been the core of the research methodology applied to three case studies concerning public “complex” open spaces within the Neapolitan urban context (in Naples, Italy).
