FUTURE-ADAPTED URBAN STRUCTURES: UTOPIA, VISION, OR NECESSITY?

Most cities and towns cope poorly with the speed of development; they lag behind and end up in structural chaos and they fail to adapt to future needs. So contend the authors of this article, who focus on the resulting inadequate location of functions, which creates unnecessary traffic. The authors present a model of an average size city, with structural suggestions for optimal utilization of location, geographical and economic qualities. The authors discuss general traffic, special solutions for vehicles, the city core, the industrial quarter, supplementary quarters of high-ranking urbanity, the university campus, schools of forestry and agriculture, military, and residential housing. The authors stress that their model is not meant as a utopia, but as an actual strategy for city planning which results in the development of an urban organism that functions to the maximum effect, in line with adequate social and environmental standards.
