This contribution presents a research approach based on experiential and environmental simulations to assess urban design projects and city plans. I argue that the combined use of both methods, in parallel or together with other modes of investigation, can foster the design and evaluation process while reducing the risk of failure, thus supporting decision-making processes.

Abstract

This contribution presents a research approach based on experiential and environmental simulations to assess urban design projects and city plans. I argue that the combined use of both methods, in parallel or together with other modes of investigation, can foster the design and evaluation process while reducing the risk of failure, thus supporting decision-making processes. The research outcomes presented are based on applied research carried out at the “Fausto Curti” Urban Simulation Laboratory at the Polytechnic University of Milan.
