Session

Sustainabile Urban Development, Architecture and Environment

Description

Cities in region haze experienced social disturbances. War, crime and corruption divert resources from areas of greatest human need; damage the capacity of societies to plan for the future, and generally threat human well-being and the environmental sustainability. Sustainability is studied and managed over many scales of time and space and in many contexts of environmental, social and economic organization. The focus of this study is on Environmental Sustainability of Cities in region thru impact of collective residential buildings in neighborhoods, occupations, lifestyles, behavior patterns and so on. Best international approaches and principles will be analyzed and compared with regional trends. Many approaches, lightly constructed around new urbanism, are effectively reducing environmental impacts by changing the built environment to create and preserve sustainable cities which support sustainable transport. Residents in compact urban neighborhoods drive less, and have significantly lower environmental impacts across a range of measures, compared with those living in sprawling suburbs. This paper attempts to identify positive and negative impact of actual trend in building collective residential buildings in cities of region with focus in Prishtina. The specific objective of this paper is to find and suggest solutions of planning approaches to the architectural designs that will have positive impact on Environmental Sustainability of Cities in region (Prishtina). The paper finally will suggest principles that will serve as policies to the new approach in process of design, creation and maintenance of build environment that can contribute to the Environmental Sustainability of Cities in region. Concluding that this paper is just starting point in integrative development process to the socially inclusive and environmental friendly cities. I hope that this paper will be used by architects, environmentalists and urban designers as guideline of future research in this field.

Impact of Collective Residential Building in Environmental Sustainability of Cities in region

Prishtina, Kosovo

Cities in region haze experienced social disturbances. War, crime and corruption divert resources from areas of greatest human need; damage the capacity of societies to plan for the future, and generally threat human well-being and the environmental sustainability. Sustainability is studied and managed over many scales of time and space and in many contexts of environmental, social and economic organization. The focus of this study is on Environmental Sustainability of Cities in region thru impact of collective residential buildings in neighborhoods, occupations, lifestyles, behavior patterns and so on. Best international approaches and principles will be analyzed and compared with regional trends. Many approaches, lightly constructed around new urbanism, are effectively reducing environmental impacts by changing the built environment to create and preserve sustainable cities which support sustainable transport. Residents in compact urban neighborhoods drive less, and have significantly lower environmental impacts across a range of measures, compared with those living in sprawling suburbs. This paper attempts to identify positive and negative impact of actual trend in building collective residential buildings in cities of region with focus in Prishtina. The specific objective of this paper is to find and suggest solutions of planning approaches to the architectural designs that will have positive impact on Environmental Sustainability of Cities in region (Prishtina). The paper finally will suggest principles that will serve as policies to the new approach in process of design, creation and maintenance of build environment that can contribute to the Environmental Sustainability of Cities in region.
