After an introduction on the subject of the relationship between energy-environment and planning in the redevelopment of existing rundown neighbourhoods and after making some considerations on the relationship between architectural and urban design, its capacity to effect change, the environmental context subject to transformation and more generally on the requirements of sustainability, the paper investigates, from a methodological viewpoint, the subject of the interpretation of the traits and environmental disturbances of a site as a tool for the definition of a framework which orients settlement decisions toward a planning approach which is compatible with the environmental resources of the place. The objective is to define procedures that can be used to identify environmental potentials and difficulties and to study their depictive criteria.

Keywords: Sustainable planning; climatic-environmental traits, urban redevelopment
