The current methodologies, surveys, catalogue and contextualization allow an initial mapping of relevant case studies, their diverse degrees of resilience and how they have been adapted to current (urban and social) conditions.
It is intended to develop the knowledge of the interaction between spatial forms, behaviours and satisfaction and to combine methodologies of architectural and social analyses.
The Action will be developed by three Working Groups, coordinated by a Core Group:
WG1 – Documenting the MCMH;
WG2 – Development of a specific set of (new) concepts for MCMH analyses;
WG3 – Leverage contemporary architecture interventions and Public Policies.
Therefore, the Action aims to produce a wider understanding of MCMH spread in Europe and beyond, not only by deepening on-going research and focussing on the existing case studies, but also by introducing new ones. The current methodologies, surveys, catalogue and contextualization allow an initial mapping of several relevant case studies, their diverse degrees of resilience and how they have been adapted to the current (urban and social) conditions. To accomplish these objectives, the Action relies on European partners but also on further collaboration with non-European researchers.
The target groups of the Action include three levels of end users:
i. Academic/scientific working groupsii. Institutional stakeholders and policymakersiii. Local communities.
One of the major Action’s tasks is sharing and crossing the available sources and studies since most information is still dispersed or gathered under different criteria. The Action aims to provide, as a major outcome, a platform for future developments by establishing an open digital database that will allow creating an MCMH Atlas. This output will remain as a future research tool, as well as a contribution to new working methodologies based on shared knowledge.
