Course detail

Urban and Regional Development

FA-DU1Acad. year: 2020/2021

The subject "Urban and regional development" deals with the theoretical aspects of the development of settlements in new social conditions. The transition of the contemporary towns and regions, characterised by local division of labour, into consumption oriented towns and regions, is analysed in detail, as well as the premisses and conditions leading to a higher form, i.e. to the city and region of leasure. Analysed are the impacts of urban development on the city's individual functions, and on the space structure of the city and the surrounding suburban area. Special attention is paid to the changes and their impact on the civilised landscape of the beginning of the 3rd millenium.
