The 'hardware' side of urban regeneration is usually associated with "infrastructure, architecture and housing", while the 'software' with the 'main operating rules that help a city to be functional and sustainable'. Therefore, while the hardware relates to the physical infrastructure being redeveloped, the software is the set of organizational, economic and social principles inspiring a good quality of life and of human relations in cities.
