The book ‘Regenerative neighbourhoods in the making’ retraces the practices of neighbourhood regeneration through design during the three and half years of the CENTRINNO project, co-funded by the European Union. It aims to make accessible the project’s methodology and to supports territorial change-makers, from policy agents and urban planners, to designers and citizens. The book gives to the reader a way to be more familiar with the topic of neighbourhood regeneration while at the same time being more equipped to develop local interventions to transform old industrial sites into locally productive hubs. It questions, opens, illustrates, and culturally embeds emerging practices of collective production in urban spaces as a plausible alternative to reconstruct the relationship between humans and natural resources at the hyper-local, regional and planetary scales.

Regenerative neighbourhoods in the making, is a publication developed as a part of the CENTRINNO project.

Written, edited, and advised in a collaborative process led by Fab Lab Barcelona, Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, Barcelona, 2024 in collaboration with CENTRINNO partners.
