Title

The changing role of the master plan<br>Planning theory, architectural design or more?

 

Abstract

The contemporary city is a complex organism presenting itself as virtual “chaos”, hiding mechanisms of dynamic activities, flexibility and variation. Processes of redesign are often forcefully modelled into the framework of traditional urban patterns and controlled with elements of “classical-hierarchic” order. However these instruments of cooperation and decision-making are incapable of interpreting modern spatial complexities and having positive effect. By increasing the selective knowledge of existing structures, simultaneously creativity will be released, expressed as new design, managing urbanity in the sense of found “disperse harmony between man and nature”. With the new town plan we wish to overcome contemporary mechanistic and static design in determining land use and replace it with more flexible and innovative methods for negotiating public and private interests.
