Focus

University campuses face two common problems: lack of facilities for the expanding enrolment numbers, and inadequate spaces for the changing education and recreational needs. Based on his expertise and research, Amir Hajrasouliha discusses the potential of adapting left-over campus open spaces to respond to these needs, adapting their physical and technological capabilities to encourage multiple academic and non-academic functions.


Streets Are Not Enough: The Introverted Block As A Neglected Type, Ivor Samuels, Anna A. Kantarek Jan 2019

Streets Are Not Enough: The Introverted Block As A Neglected Type, Ivor Samuels, Anna A. Kantarek

Focus

Modernism in planning and urban design led to the erosion of the traditional city's morphology. Samuels and Kantarek use the plan for Nowa Huta, a 1949 new town near Krakow, to point out the problems related to the introvert block, particularly walkability, connectivity, and the lack of direct entrances to the residences from the street. The introvert block type evolved into present-day gated communities.

Boom And Decline: When Greenways Link Low And High Ses Neighborhoods, Margaret Bryant Jan 2019

Boom And Decline: When Greenways Link Low And High Ses Neighborhoods, Margaret Bryant

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Social and economic inequalities in American cities mean that “booming cities” all have neighborhoods that are not thriving, and “declining cities” are likely to have some areas that are booming. Disadvantaged urban neighborhoods with high numbers of people living in poverty exist in all cities, but they are more pervasive in declining cities. Greenways, linear features in the urban landscape, cut across neighborhoods with varying levels of socioeconomic status (SES), depending on their design and place-specific characteristics. Where greenways link wealth to poverty, interesting concerns, issues, and opportunities arise. This paper reviews existing research on phenomena associated with this particular ...


Landscape, Ecological And Visual Impacts Of A Stream Restoration In Hungary, Zsombor Boromisza, Attila Gergely, Eszter Jákli, Cai Xuecheng Jan 2019

Landscape, Ecological And Visual Impacts Of A Stream Restoration In Hungary, Zsombor Boromisza, Attila Gergely, Eszter Jákli, Cai Xuecheng

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In the course of the preparation for the restoration of the Váli-stream, an environmental impact assessment (EIA) and, as a part of it, foundational wildlife and landscape protection studies were carried out. The goal of the study is to reveal the significant impacts of a planned stream restoration on wildlife protection, and later on, to propose mitigation measures on the adverse effects. The other main goal of the study is to evaluate the intervention’s effects on the landscape, regarding the landscape character, land use, landscape structure and scenery as well.

Interlinking People And Nature Through The Technologized Urban Greenway, Dorottya Bekesi

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The project area is located along the Danube River in Budapest, and as a peninsula, has a significant role in the city on an ecological level. In my research, I present the project from the industrial revolution up to the present day. In my concluding remarks, various design ideas for implementation on the peninsula and in its neighborhood were demonstrated.

The abandoned Népsziget with its industrial site holds a lot of potential for cultural and environmental development. When it comes to city planning in Budapest the main issue is the decrease of greenfield territories in the suburban areas while the ...


On The Coastline: The Genesis Of Green Infrastructure Towards A Future Sustainable Landscape For The City Of Maputo, Mozambique, Ana Beja Da Costa, Luis Ribeiro Jan 2019

On The Coastline: The Genesis Of Green Infrastructure Towards A Future Sustainable Landscape For The City Of Maputo, Mozambique, Ana Beja Da Costa, Luis Ribeiro

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Cities in Africa, where the most remarkable forthcoming developments in the overall pattern of urbanization are expected, and quite notably in Sub-Saharan cities such as Maputo, experience accelerating population increases that stress urban infrastructures beyond capacity, and increase pressure on existent valuable ecosystems. In the city’s coastal plains, the recently constructed Maputo ring road and Katembe bridge are drawing urban development towards the last stretch of vacant land of the Municipality, compromising the flood plains and mangrove ecosystems.

This paper aims to refine the planning discourse by systematizing urban strategies associated to green infrastructure functions, having mangrove wetlands as ...


Why Did The Turtle Cross The Street? An Examination Of Herpetofauna Habitat Road Fragmentation, Carlos J.L. Balsas Jan 2019

Why Did The Turtle Cross The Street? An Examination Of Herpetofauna Habitat Road Fragmentation, Carlos J.L. Balsas

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Roads and urban development cause severe herpetofauna habitat fragmentation. The objective of this study is to analyze the road ecology problem of herpetofauna habitat fragmentation. It is argued that most wetland systems have high biodiversity conservation value and that their herpetofauna habitat fragmentation requires the implementation of adequate road crossing mitigation strategies. The research methods comprised mostly literature reviews on road ecology, habitat road fragmentation and mitigation, and roadway redesign measures. The key finding discovered was the urgent need for more continuous habitats, uniform underground crossings, and the elimination of reptile and amphibian road crossing deaths in (sub)urban settings ...

The Role Of Mining Ponds In The Hungarian Greenway Network, Ildikó M. Bugyi, Nóra H. Horváth, Dalma Varga

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The aim of our research is to present the current state of mining ponds, wetlands (created by mining activity in Hungary) and to give support to the mining ponds’ nature protection importance and their role in green infrastructure.

This research topic is very important, partly because of the lack of data related to mining ponds, but also because wetlands and their connecting blue and green infrastructure are playing a more important role today in reducing the effects of climate change.

A GIS analysis was made using data from the national mining register, the CORINE Land Cover and Agricultural Parcel Identification ...


The Role Of Individual Trees In The Protection Of Urban Image, László Z. Nádasy, Gábor Sándor, Zsuzsanna Illyés Jan 2019

The Role Of Individual Trees In The Protection Of Urban Image, László Z. Nádasy, Gábor Sándor, Zsuzsanna Illyés

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The protection of urban image and cityscape has become the target of professional attention in Hungary since the introduction of Urban Image Handbooks and urban image regulations. Trees are a major part of local image in Hungary. Using GIS methods we established that built-in areas are usually surrounded by sparsely wooded areas and groves, which are taller than the vast majority of buildings. Therefore, trees play a dominant role in shaping urban character. Effects of trees on urban living conditions, livability and the ecosystem services they provide, have been intensively researched in recent years. However, the role of individual trees ...

Transformations Of Urban Green Spaces (Ugs) In Sub-Cities: A Case Of New Town Of Kolkata And Gurgaon Of Delhi, Uttam Roy

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Sub-cities offer affordable houses and often better living quality when compared to a mother city. One of the major causes of such better living quality is a greater share of land earmarked as urban green spaces in the prevailing master plan. The mega cities in India like Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and their sub-cities accommodate a larger share of the total urban population compared to the other million population cities and fewer than million cities. For example, under national capital region (NCR) planning, Delhi, several such sub-cities are planned around the city of Delhi, such as Gurgaon, Noida, Dwarka, Rohini & Greater ...

Greenways As A New Potential For Shrinking Cities. The Case Of Milan (Italy), Luca Maria Francesco Fabris, Gerardo Semprebon, Fan Fu Jan 2019

Greenways As A New Potential For Shrinking Cities. The Case Of Milan (Italy), Luca Maria Francesco Fabris, Gerardo Semprebon, Fan Fu

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The paper aims to illustrate the transformation of Milan, focusing on its relationship with (urban) greenways. At the beginning of XXI century Milan was deeply converted into a mere service industry centre. The change modified also its territory. Brownfields took place of industries and logistic compounds, places without a use dotting its urban fabric. In the 1970s, visionary architects, planners, and landscape architects started to design a series of parks surrounding the town, creating a green crown fading its outskirts. North Park and South Park together with Boscoincittà (Wood-in-town) created a continuous green curtain setting the basis for a circular ...
