URBAN PUBLIC SPACES: THE EVOLUTION OF THE PROBLEMS (the contemporary design context)

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №3 (63) September, 2018

The article analyzes the evolution of the problems of public spaces in large industrial cities. The urban problems generated by industrialization have had problems and challenges of the post-industrial period added to them. The design of an urban space in the traditional paradigm proves to be inefficient due to the rapidly changing design context. The problems of the current situation, therefore, need to be explored in two aspects: as problems of urban space mismatching the new needs, and as problems of inefficiencies in the application of design tools that was developed in the outgoing realities. The article defines the range of problems related to the sphere of interests of urban environment designers, predicts the directions for the further evolution of urban public spaces and formulates cultural values and reference points that could form a basis for the development of a new design paradigm.
