Most countries have witnessed rapid urbanization and growing use of automobiles for more than half a century. This has resulted in increased urban expansion and increased demand for motorized transportation, with a variety of environmental, social, and economic effects. Urban transportation is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions and a health hazard owing to air and noise pollution. Commuters and goods transporters bear enormous economic and productivity losses as a result of traffic congestion caused by unsustainable transportation infrastructures. These issues are more acute in cities in developing countries. In the following decades, this region will account for over 90% of world population growth. These communities are already straining to fulfill the rising demand for transportation investment. ??In this thesis, we analyze the region of Regio Parco in Torino, Italy on its mobility aspects and redesign the system to mitigate and resist the changes that are occurring in the environment by using different passive techniques. We emphasize on the soft mobility aspects and encourage people through architecture and planning. This is done in 4 parts. We first build a background in Mobility and understand different aspects of the concept. Then, there is an emphasis on climate change and strategies to adapt, mitigate and resist it. During these parts we go through case studies that have been through such processes to give us a better understanding on the topics. Then we analyze the region of Regio Parco focusing on the mobility and green infrastructure. This level of detail begins with some background on the intervention city, Turin. After locating it and briefly framing it from a historical/social standpoint, the resident population and its evolution over the previous few years, the climate and the effects of climate change it is experiencing are all discussed. We use the software of EnviMET to get information on the micro climate situation of the zone. Moving down the degree of detail, we arrive at the identification of problem areas and its Regio Parco district, on which the individual places under investigation insist, which are explored both from a geographical and historical standpoint.
