Abstract

Using architecture as a "global phenomenon", holistically integrating solutions inspired by new scientific progress in the field of urban ecology, is a proactive way of responding to the challenges and precariousness of the contemporary city. In this paper, which illustrates a process of building and urban regeneration developed within the framework of the agreement between the University of Palermo and CICOP "International Centre for the Conservation of Heritage" with the research entitled "G.A. Transition&Regeneration "*, it is necessary to evaluate all the opportunities and benefits that the inclusion of green spaces and lungs bring to building contexts in a perspective of eco-sustainability (green globes) and social inclusion. This also means creating models of rehabilitation and regeneration in a logic of co-design. With this in mind, the research aims to propose new theories of "global architecture" through which to rebalance the environmental system of cities and individual housing units. These theories form the basis of a reform of living aimed at the wellbeing of citizens and the entire planet, which several European capitals are already promoting in a perspective of ecological transition. It is necessary to start by humanising and "parching" cities, creating new urban metabolisms, developing an integrated design approach which, through innovative and inclusive processes, encourages the triggering of urban regeneration interventions from large to small scale. The results will be calculated on the basis of improvements in living space and citizens' health that will gradually lead us from the Anthropocene Era to the Salutogenic Era.
