The soil belongs to the nonrenewable resources and its preservation affects the different scales of architecture.

Abstract

The soil belongs to the nonrenewable resources and its preservation affects the different scales of architecture. The preservation has to be pursued through various actions: blocking the urban enlargement, redeveloping and denaturalizing the underused areas, reducing the row materials extraction, cautious managing of the end of life stage of buildings and materials. Within this contest, we briefly describe the outcomes of the environmental assessment of the 51 residential buildings demolition, near the Malpensa airport. The study inspires two considerations: at the urban scale, the ability to give a new identity to an area where the buildings life cycle comes to an end; at the materials scale, the possibility to reduce the environmental impacts on soil thanks to a favourable waste management.
