Abstract

The building stock in Abruzzo presents issues related to the obsolescence of the installations and the high management costs due to low energy performance of the building envelope. At the same time, the emptying of the outlying smaller towns is causing the deterioration of the building fabric until the transformation to ruins. Furthermore, the succession of disasters has caused a new housing emergency, which is fueled also by relevant migratory phenomena, due to the geographical location of the region Abruzzo. The redevelopment of building stock, therefore, could become an incentive for the widespread regeneration of the buildings and on the other side a useful tool in tackling the housing emergency. The presented research, therefore, aims to identify a building low tech system that allows to redevelop the existing building quickly and flexibly, according to the priorities of interventions in a state of emergency. The identification of locally available low cost materials is the result of an analysis of the territory. The successive earthquakes over the past few years and the consequent necessity of securing many buildings and rebuilding them have generated a large supply of temporary systems (tubes) and palettes, which become a waste product of the yard. Therefore, the modular construction system designed reuses these waste materials with advantages from an economic and environmental point of view. We configure a flexible modular construction system with different performance possibilities (from a thermal, acoustic, lighting, ventilation energy efficiency points of view) that has been experimented through the project of a temporary house, built in L'Aquila where the collapse of pitched roofs caused by the earthquake has given way to the underlying floor that can become the place of controlled accretions
