Abstract

This paper intends to focus the problem of integration between construction and planning of human habitat according to a symbiotic vision of co-evolutionary adaptation of inhabitants/users and their artifacts with the natural environment. An important contribution can be arrive starting from the concept of resilience of a complex social-ecological system, defined as the adaptive ability of a system to absorb the stresses generated by internal/external factors reconfiguring itself through new dynamic balanced levels. The paradigm of resilience can help to overcome the polarity between building process and transformation project of the settlement system assuming a process/project integrated vision based on the technological design of relationships between the built environment and its bioecological components, organizational-procedural processes and technical artifacts. Summary. The scenario of resource shortage and extended emergency (climatic, geological, medical, energetic) that involves all living aspects of the settlement system, cannot be faced and resolved as long as the approach to problems will focus only on the connotation of vulnerabilities and values as single events/objects. It is necessary that concept of settlement system approaches the idea of built environment. Practically, tending towards the construction of a reactive and resilient habitat, in which the relationship between vulnerability and values of the territory and between the various dimensions of the landscape transformation take part of a “continuous open project” for the constant governance of balanced conditions between Mankind and Nature. In this direction, the paper suggests a model for an inter-systemic, interdimensional and inclusive technological planning/design approach that put at the centre of the transformative and constructive process of human habitat a different conception of natural/artificial resources and environmental/cultural heritage in a different flow of time; (i.e.) considering resources not as goods/products for consumption, but as capital (natural, cultural, human) to preserve, maintain, renew, for present and future generations. A transformative framework of interdependence in which strategic, programmatic, decisionmaking, designing and management actions involve the collective dimension as well as the most individual one.
