González García, Isabel; Tamayo Palacios, Alejandro y Hernández Aja, Agustín (2014). The role of rehabilitation of buildings in the urban integration, social cohesion and environmental responsibility.

In the framework of the National Research Plan 2008-2011, our research poses estrategy for the design and evaluation of plans and programmes of urban integrated regeneration. The objective is to develop a study on the role of rehabilitation of buildings in concepts like urban integration, social cohesion and environmental responsibility. The research proposes a methodological tool for evaluating urban regeneration processes from a holistic perspective that can serve as a guide for governments and technical teams to address intervention in consolidated urban areas with physical and socio-economic problems. The development of the tool has inevitably led to delve into different areas where you can intervene but has not lost sight of the complex interplay of factors involved in the process. It is an open source tool to visualize Urban Integrated Rehabilitation processes.
Keywords: Urban Integrated Regeneration, Urban Sustainability, Social Cohesion, Deprived neighbourhoods.
García Madruga, Carolina; Hernández Aja, Agustín y Matesanz Parellada, Ángela (2014). The role of the urban support in the regeneration of vulnerable neighbourhoods. En: “World Sustainable Building 2014 Conference”, 28 a 30 de octubre de 2014, Barcelona, España. Disponible en: http://oa.upm.es/33405/.
The processes of social and urban segregation have got worse during the last decades. Several studies have deepened into the analysis of the causes and consequences of these processes and have tried to define solutions that beyond eradicating some specific problems, were aimed at the consolidation of sustainable urban environments. This paper presents an approach to the problem of urban inequality based on the concept of urban vulnerability as something that goes beyond the social and economic problems. In exclusion processes it is very important to consider the urban context and the physical and structural conditions not only in each neighborhood but also in the city as a whole. The paper seeks to pose a reflection on the urban support, which is understood in all its complexity and thought to be a key to ensure access and the right to the city of the citizens most in need.
Keywords: Urban vulnerability, accessibility, urban assets, urban support.
Matesanz Parellada, Ángela y Hernández Aja, Agustín (2014). On the improvement of urban regeneration processes from more than thirty years of rehabilitation experiences. En: “World Sustainable Building Conference 2014”, 28 a 30 de octubre de 2014, Barcelona, España. Disponible en: http://oa.upm.es/33391/.
At this moment of extended economic, social and environmental crisis within which new interventions on the consolidated city are being set out, it is essential to count on the acquired experience in urban rehabilitation processes that were carried out in Spain during the last thirty years. Despite the complexity of this kind of processes and the diversity of the situations and actions that happened, this paper addresses the analysis of common patterns in twenty urban rehabilitation experiences. Different stages of the processes were studied, from the management to the regenerated areas in order to ease the design of new intervention initiatives.
Keywords: Regeneration, management, rehabilitation processes, stakeholders, urban areas.
Rodríguez Suárez, Iván y Hernández Aja, Agustín (2014). Housing plans and urban rehabilitation in Spain, 1992-2012. En: “World Sustainable Building 2014 Conference”, 28 a 30 de octubre de 2014, Barcelona, España. Disponible en: http://oa.upm.es/32871/.
This paper explores the urban rehabilitation projects promoted by the Spanish Government between 1992 and 2012 through housing plans. The analysis is based on the comparison of programmes and estimations gathered in these plans with actual housing production within this period in order to find the connection between sectoral housing planning and real estate cycles in these last twenty years. During the period under review, six state housing plans, that were mainly focused on the promotion of newly-constructed state-subsidised housing, were developed, including the Areas of Integrated Rehabilitation programmes (ARI programmes). In spite of the relevance and growing complexity of these programmes, these played a subsidiary role in the government housing policy and were insignificant regarding the whole real estate production in this period.
Keywords: Comprehensive rehabilitation areas, urban rehabilitation, urban regeneration, housing plans, real estate production.
