ABSTRACT The reduction of seismic risk due to retrofit of existing buildings is part of catastrophe prevention. The planning of interventions on given buildings differs from new planning through an important condition: the existing building is basis for all planning and construction performances. Social aspects play an important role, too. In this work a strategic planning system for the reduction of seismic risk has been developed. This includes the implementation of the plan and refers therefore to economic, social and administrative guidelines. There are different actors implied in the realization of retrofit measures. The Benefit-Costs-Analysis will not be made with the usual utility value means, but as multicriteria decision. A framework for an environment of evaluation of the information and decision making as well as a methodology which supports the experts conceptually in the priority setting process will be developed. The different instruments, goals, scenaria which characterise intervention layers with certain depth, will be included and expressed as criteria for the appreciation of values.

    ABSTRACT: What does the city's form actually mean to the people who live there? What can the city planner do to make the city's image more vivid and memorable to the city dweller? To answer these questions, Mr. Lynch, supported by studies of Los Angeles, Boston, and Jersey City, formulates a new criterion—imageability—and shows its potential value as a guide for the building and rebuilding of cities. The wide scope of this study leads to an original and vital method for the evaluation of city form. The architect, the planner, and certainly the city dweller will all want to read this book.
