Abstract

The issues of building densification and land conservation are much debated in local development policies and are related to the rational use of local environmental and climate resources. The paper proposes a critical interpretation of the research project that ISAAC Institute of SUPSI University (Switzerland), carried out on these themes by analysing a case in the municipality of Lugano Paradiso. The project analyses the effect of the urban transformation in terms of energy and solar access. The proposal of the case study was aimed at highlighting the importance of quantifying precisely all the consequences that local planning strategies can have on energy and environment so as to be able to assess their real impacts and define sustainable criteria and possible improvement actions.
