Abstract

Smart cities are a necessary step towards a new sustainability scenario that accommodates the objectives of sustainability from a cross and synergistic perspective, with the support of new technologies, networks and more efficient large-scale systems (such as a minimum unit neighborhood). This paper addresses the urban renovation of the actual city by improving the envelope of an urban typology, using nanotechnology materials on the façades, roofs, and external renovations. This research presents the role of nanomaterials to enhance a sustainable society, on the existing city, with suitable constructive systems and in an easier way. The opportunity to use nanotechnology for the rehabilitation of residential neighborhoods built after the Second World War, which combines a number of advantages, will be presented.
