CAVIAR’s research projects always take into account the three axes of attention and focus on one or more scope of activity, in attention to the type of project, degree of complexity and transversality, number of actors, etc. To facilitate internal organization, they are grouped into research lines. At the moment the active lines are the following:

L1: Sustainable construction, energy efficiency and quality of life in architecture and urban planning.

L2: Industrialized construction materials and systems.

L3: Urban regeneration and social dialogue.

L4: Urban digitization: shared autonomous mobility and technologies for increasing capacities.

L5: Update of the theory on the architectural project.

Axes of Attention

E1. People’s quality of life (safety, health, comfort, desire).

E2. Environment (ecosystemic, sustainable, renewable, suggestive).

E3. Advanced management (efficient, relational, economic, transparent).

Scope of Activity

A1. Construction: advanced (industrialized, digital, integrated, monitored), sustainable, (eco-efficient, circular, durable), conscious (continuing, accessible, historic)

A2. Building: habitable (safe, healthy, accessible, comfortable), functional (adaptable, interactive, maintainable), environmental (non-polluting, integrated, reconfigurable, bio-energetic), personal (architectural, representative, own)

A3. City: inclusive (dialogue, participatory, collaborative), sustainable (rehabilitable, regenerable, renewable), intelligible (landscape, walkable, welcoming)

A4. Territory: integrated (solidary, equitable, sustainable, resilient), competitive (connected, specialized, cared for), attractive (flow generator, memorable, exemplary)

Among the main activities of the research group is the development of innovation and research projects on a regional, national and international scale. CAVIAR currently has 7 regional projects, 1 national project and 3 European projects.
