Abstract

Demolition or renovation? Choosing can be a complex task, having to consider the initial conditions and predict future scenarios.
Although building organisms regeneration potential is manifold, the technology and construction system can play a decisive role in the determination of the end of their life cycle, due to the costs of renovation and structural and energy adaptation. In addition to economic assessments, political, historical, and social motivations are involved, or in some cases are put first. Therefore, the final phase of a building’s life is not always indisputably determinable; there are two possible scenarios that are often outlined under a condition of functional inefficiency: Demolish or Renovate.
Through the application of two approaches, the demolition project and the renovation project for the same case study in Pozzuoli, it is possible to highlight the potential, advantages and consequences of the two different ways of action.
