SPACE, CONSTRUCTION AND PLANNING. AN OVERVIEW OF THE CURRENT URBAN CONDITION OF SURROUNDINGS IN POST-SOCIALIST CITIES IN THE SEE REGION
AbstractUrban residents worldwide express a desire for contact with nature and each other, attractive environments, places in which to recreate and play, privacy, a more active role in the design of their community, and a sense of place identity. However, the spatial and urban planning system does not provide conditions for a such way of urban development. It is often completely opposite, so cities are going developing without meeting the needs of their citizens and neglecting so much needed relation between spatial resources, system of planning and process of construction. The roots of this problem arise in the period after World War II, so the work represents a theoretical critique of modernist city and physical planning. Since 25 years after the fall of socialism and the transition period, there has not yet been estabished a system of planning that would correspond to the needs of the contemporary context of a new urban age, this analysis calls for re-thinking of spatial and urban planning, considering the relationship between the context, the planning and construction process. The focus of consideration are space as the basic potential and resource, and the role of planner as of the main actor of process.
