The regeneration of residential suburban areas requires specific methodology alternative from that of the conventional compact city. Nine topics for urban regeneration will be revised in depth by means of a cross national comparison between American and European case studies (mobility, density, energy and water, civic grid, ecological grid, cultural substrate, social substrate, communication, management and planning). The intervention tools acquired will be applied on a specific and emblematic urban regeneration proposal in the Barcelona Metropolitan Region.
