A Multiple Criteria Approach Defining Cultural Adaptive Reuse of Abandoned Buildings
In this chapter, we consider a decision problem related to cultural adaptive reuse of abandoned buildings in Turin, an Italian big city. We propose to handle this decision problem by considering several criteria and by using a recently proposed nominal classification method called Cat-SD (Categorization by Similarity–Dissimilarity). The case study is presented in detail in order to illustrate the advantages of the proposed method. The chapter starts by presenting an overview of the Cat-SD method. A description of the case study and the construction of the decision model is provided. Results and discussion are then presented. The chapter ends with some concluding remarks and directions for further research.
