title The sensitive tower: Architectural and urban design education faced with fragile metropolitan ecologies
source RESPECTING FRAGILE PLACES [29th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-9-4912070-1-3], University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Architecture (Slovenia) 21-24 September 2011, pp.581-588

summary Neighborhoods that are still outside the market target can find alternative ways of re-development. Therefore, it is necessary to design architectures compatible with their fragile ecologies. This research benefits from a previous study where we tried to observe the evolution of the uses of buildings and ways of living faced with changes in environmental conditions in a given urban context. Increased automobile traffic has led to changes in the use of residential spaces whose function was gradually replaced by commercial activities. Making use of graphic-oriented interpretation of urban ambiance and landscape analysis methodology applied to the design of different floor levels, this paper aims to introduce the concept of sensitive tower defined on the basis of observations made in our post-occupancy survey as a teaching strategy for the design studio faced with the current challenges of the contemporary metropolis.
