The ongoing landscape transformation worldwide has raised global concern, as it involves the need to rethink the post-industrial landscape while protecting industrial heritage and the environment. This is especially true for post-industrial heritage sites, currently abandoned and suffering acelerated degradation and speculation processes. Instead of consuming green lands, these heritage landscapes need to be redeveloped and given new life, enabling their transition to an increasingly sustainable urban setting. In this scenario, the present Special Issue considers a set of subjects that highlight the diverse nature of the scientific domains associated with the post-industrial, emphasizing the need to acknowledge that the contribution of each sustainability dimension is equally important, offering complementary development opportunities while enabling redeveloped landscapes to fulfil multiple functions in an integrated way, and protecting our common heritage and underlining the relevance of multifunctionality to promote sustainable urban planning and development.
