Abstract

The aim of this work is to bring together a variety of data-sets including urban scale plans, data driven simulations and government regulations related to atflood- risk areas, in order to develop infrastructural plans and architectural responses to flooding. In the field of management and prevention of catastrophic events, the proposal is to create a telematic map of risk that brings together data on nature, the built environment, current policies and forecasting. We shall reassess the map production so that environment and risk belong equally to the definition of 'territory'. In considering the rate of change of cities and the continuous replacement of the housing stock, it is necessary to adopt operational plans that intervene in environmental and infrastructural planning, architectural project, and ICT systems design. Only an overall and simultaneous urban vision and management can bridge the current gaps between programming documents and executive plans. Hence the role of the architect is to connect the different layers of the city, in order to form strategic planning processes related to the contingencies of a constantly changing reality. The architecture of the city, as well as country planning, depends only on considering the territory as a whole, and maps as the platform on which it is possible to study future actions. The main aim of the Telematic Map of the Risk is to use digital techniques to rematerialize reality.
