Abstract

The transition towards a resilient and sustainable city, through an adaptive approach, implies a radical transformation involving all aspects of urban life and the design/building process through a multidisciplinary approach. New digital technologies can enhance the process by facilitating dialogue and collaboration between disciplines. The presented research investigates the complex and mutually determinant relationship between new digital technologies and the construction field. We propose a new interpretation useful to deal with the complexity of the topic which, in highlighting its multidisciplinary approach, analyses the three main macro aspects identified: material, spatial and social.
