Abstract

Through the regimentation of rivers, the water has determined the evolution of anthropic development and settle communities. Because the extreme climatic events, inthe last years the boundary between inhabited lands and water bodies was often transformed through an illogical separation between the dimensions of control the river flows (monitoring, safeguarding, regenerating) and the dimensions of inhabitants’ life-activities (moving, recreating, open-air living). On the contrary, this boundary can become the main site in which to reactivate resilience capacities working on an innovative design approach able to incorporate the randomness and uncertainty triggered by the mutated climatic conditions, forecasting settlements’ variable structures guaranteeing a state of adaptive safety and healthy living. This ‘inter-dimensional re-design process’ can contribute to the definition of evolutionary inhabiting scenarios though a proactive re-composition of strategic, tactic and operational actions. In this symbiotic adaptation of the human kind to the natural environment (proposed with this abstract), is possible to implement different levels of resilience: the safeguarding of exposed natural/artificial elements (resilience of metabolic flows); the safety and health of inhabitants (resilience of communities/ organizations); the integrity of architectural/infrastructural heritage (resilience of the built environment).
