Landscape structure planning and the urban green space in polycentric city

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

Green infrastructure includes: parks, forests, green roofs, green walls, and community gardens, provide a wide variety of ecosystem services, including air quality improvement, climate regulation, and other elements that enhance urban environmental quality. The aim of this paper is to discuss the merits of re- establishing the concept of Landscape structure planning as a creative means of planning, designing, implementing and managing a viable approach to the expansion of our towns and cities into poly-centric city regions. The area of Prishtina (572 km2, about 600.000 inhabitant) represents one of the largest Kosovo metropolitan areas. Our study is mainly focused on the two parks in Prishitna: respectively that of Germia and park of the city near the center of Prishtina which the inhabitants of the city make use of it throughout the year. The park of Germia is located in the northeast part of Pristina. Whereas the city park is located in the central areas of Pristina. Urban green infrastructure plays an important role in the vast majority of challenges that are related to the urban infrastructure of 21st century. These surfaces are of significant importance and contribute to create premises for diversity concerned with public and private green spaces.
