Event Title

Investigation of the impact of revitalization of public spaces in the increase of usage and the perceiving of these areas

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

The first concepts of urban spaces in Kosovo were introduced in between 17th to 19th century when the cities were forming and their gathering and social functions such as mosques, hammams, open-air bazaar and clock towers were introduced. These vital structures, beside their primary respective function, served as gathering, discussing politics and socializing spaces. Results of this study were developed through critical review and observation of recently intervened public spaces, comparison between them and interviews with citizens and frequent users. This ongoing study aims to analyze the impact of revitalization of urban spaces and the way people use and perceive these spaces, as successful examples for future interventions in the chosen study case “Parku i Qytetit” in Prishtina, in terms of maintenance, quality urban space and design. Results from survey and comparative studies of other examples showed that these spaces were mostly used for recreation and sports, relaxing and socializing. Problems and potentials revealed during technical analysis will be improved through a design proposal for the study case of “Parku i Qytetit”.
