As cities are struggling to cope with the second wave of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the idea of 15-min cities seem to have sparked planners' imagination and politicians' willingness for providing us with a new urban planning eutopia. This paper explores the "15-min city" concept as a structural and functional element for redesigning contemporary...
Article
Climate change and environmental pressures in urban areas have created the need for new concepts and tools for the management of urban development that ensure the protection of natural and cultural resources while also enhancing urban resilience. Green infrastructure (GI) is often associated with sustainable goals that cities strive to achieve thro...

O δημόσιος χώρος είναι φορέας των κοινωνικών δεδομένων της πόλης καθώς εκεί παράγεται και αναπαράγεται η κοινωνία μέσα από συνεχώς μεταβαλλόμενες σχέσεις, λειτουργώντας ως ενεργητικό διάμεσο, αποτελώντας φυσική αποτύπωση των κοινωνικών μεταβολών και παράλληλα επηρεάζοντας τες, με εμφανή τη στροφή του σχεδιασμού από την αντιμετώπιση αυτού του χώρου...

Από την αρχή της δεκαετίας του ‘80 πολλές ελληνικές πόλεις έχουν εισέλθει σε μία πορεία μετάλλαξης από το παραδοσιακό «συμπαγές» μοντέλο αστικής ανάπτυξης σε ένα «διάχυτο» μοντέλο, που χαρακτηρίζεται από έντονο κατακερματισμό της δομής και των λειτουργιών του. Το φαινόμενο αυτό δεν είναι αποκλειστικά ελληνικό αλλά αντιθέτως παγκόσμιο, έχοντας ποικί...

Understanding cities and their development is a complex and multifaceted issue. Cities are places where individuals, households, companies etc. concentrate to benefit from the agglomeration and proximity of urban activities. There are many ways to approach the critical question of how urban activities are spatially organized and interrelated to pro...

It has been proved that urban development patterns affect in various ways cities’ environmental quality. To this purpose, one of the factors that have been examined is the role of urban green spaces, in balancing the effects of human activities in dense urban landscapes. One of the major external costs of dense urban environment is smog and greenho...

Από τις μεγαλύτερες προκλήσεις εφαρμογής αστικών μοντέλων προσομοίωσης αποτελεί η διαθεσιμότητα των δεδομένων που αυτά χρειάζονται για να λειτουργήσουν. Αυτό συμβαίνει για δύο κυρίως λόγους, πρώτον γιατί απαιτούν μεγάλο όγκο δεδομένων και δεύτερον γιατί τα όποια δεδομένα χρησιμοποιηθούν θα πρέπει να είναι διαθέσιμα διαχρονικά. Αυτό έχει ως αποτέλεσ...

Η μεγάλη αύξηση του πληθυσμού και η συγκέντρωση αυτού σε αστικές περιοχές είναι ένα φαινόμενο που απασχολεί έντονα την παγκόσμια επιστημονική κοινότητα εδώ και πολλές δεκαετίες. Σήμερα, το 54% του παγκόσμιου πληθυσμού ζει σε αστικές περιοχές, ποσοστό που αναμένεται να υπερβεί το 65% έως το 2050, ενώ ήταν μικρότερο του 50% μόλις πριν από μία δεκαετί...

A planner who claims the quality and assets of his or her plans must be able to justify or even prove their anticipated outcomes. In the midst of the conflicting and sometimes contrasting views of how planning should be done, it seems that the use of models might be the most productive approach. Information technology and urban models entered plann...

Οι μητροπολιτικές περιοχές της Αθήνας και Θεσσαλονίκης βρίσκονται μπροστά σε θεμελιώδεις και βαθύς μετασχηματισμούς σε ότι αφορά τη μορφολογική και λειτουργική τους οργάνωση. Με χρονική υστέρηση περίπου μίας τεσσαρακονταετίας οι ελληνικές πόλεις έχουν αρχίσει να υφίστανται το φαινόμενο των «edge cities» ή «center-less cities» έτσι όπως έχει βιωθεί...
