Urban areas are subject to an increased risk of suffering climate change-related impacts. There is a growing need to rethink our cities, assuming climate resilience as a major driver of transformation within urban settlements.
Heat-proof Cities represents an interdisciplinary contribution between urban design and climate-environmental considerations, with the aim of encouraging dialogue on urban adaptation to extreme heat events. The book adopts a project-oriented approach, highlighting the great potential of urban regeneration projects for climate-resilient cities.

Deborah Paolini
was born in 1997 and lives in Milan. After obtaining a diploma in foreign languages, her love for nature inspired her to graduate with honours in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. Passionate about urban regeneration and sustainability, she is committed to making her contribution to the climate resilience of the built environment. She considers it essential to enrich her research experience with interdisciplinary and international perspectives. This also involves a long-standing collaboration with Urban Land Institute as Coordinator for Italy and the participation in a research carried out with MIT on the topic “Smart villages of Italy”. Heat-proof Cities is the result of an ongoing collaborative relationship between Politecnico and the Swiss university SUPSI
