I CURSO DE PLANIFICACION TERRITORIAL. TEMA 4: DISENO URBANO. 4.3. EL CONCEPTO DE TIPO ARQUITECTONICO EN LA FORMA URBANA

THIS REPORT DEALS WITH URBAN MORPHOLOGY, E.G. THE RELATION BETWEEN THE ARCHITECTONIC TYPE CONCEPT AND THE SHAPE OF THE TOWN. A STUDY IS MADE OF THE SHAPE OF TOWNS (OR ARCHITECTONIC SYSTEM OF URBAN INFRASTRUCTURE, INCLUDING THE HARMONIZATION OF DIFFERENT URBAN ELEMENTS SUCH AS BUILDINGS, PARKS, STREETS, SQUARES, ETC) WHICH CONDITIONS THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF THE USERS AND INTRODUCES IN PLANNING A QUALITATIVE LEVEL AND AN URBAN PATTERN. ATTENTION IS DRAWN TO THE FACT THAT THE URBAN "TEXTURE" IS AN OPEN AND PROGRESSIVE CONFIGURATION BASED ON AN ECONOMIC BASIS AND THE PARTICIPATION OF THE TOWN DWELLERS IN THE UTILIZATION OF THE TOWN. AN EFFORT IS MADE TO PROVE THAT THE ARCHITECTONIC TYPE IS NOT SIMPLY A QUESTION OF SELECTION. CAUSES OF IRRATIONAL DECISIONS CONCERNING THE USE OF URBAN LAND ARE DISCUSSED TOGETHER WITH THE INFLUENCE OF THE ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY OF CONSTRUCTION ON THE URBAN DEVELOPMENT AND THE ARCHITECTONIC TYPE IN RELATION TO TOWN CONCEPTS. COMMENTS ARE MADE ON THE EVOLUTION IN CONSTRUCTION TYPES AND URBAN GROWTH. FOR THE COVERING ABSTRACT, SEE IRRD ABSTRACT NO 106086.
