Abstract

The trends in force about the municipal urbanistic plans foreshadow a progressive overcoming of the traditional quantitative approach, based on the need's account, trough the traditional relation between inhabitants and habitations and the one between inhabitants and public spaces. Putting together the most recent innovative suggestions about the urbanistic and environmental matters, a methodological proposal of sizing has been formulated, referring to specific objects (residence, production, infrastructures) and territorial contexts, articulated in five phases: 1) Needs' recognition, or the identification and the assessment of the settlement's needs in relation to the housing request and to the consequent services demand. 2) Assignment of the settlement's loads. 3) Proportioning, that is that phase which allows to transform the settlement's load into a physical impediment. It means that it expresses the physical transformation of the settlement's units. 4) Localization, or the individuation of the areas where the settlement's loads land and outspread, because of the proportioning. 5) Urbanistic organization. It is proposed, then, an approach in which the sizing is interpreted in the light of the sustainability principle. That principle is meant as immanent to the five phases of the procedure, as it is referred to the search of the settlements load's limits of admissibility.
