Example text

51 John Turner (1927–) is a British architect and professor who has written extensively on housing and community organisation. Turner’s central thesis argued that housing is best provided and managed by those who are to dwell in it rather than being centrally administered by the state. 52 In particular, in this field significant contributions have come from architects such as Walter Segal (1907–1985), Cedric Price (1934–2003) and John Habraken (1928–). G. Conzen (1907–2000) was a British (German-born) geographer and a pioneer of the field of urban morphology.

If the time of the compact, dense city was over, the historic city could still play an important role, not linked to production and communication, but rather to living and social exchange. The historic city, in this innovative concept, is seen as part of a network of urban functions, not just as a model for the creation of new urban centres, as in Sitte’s view, but as an area where new functions compatible with traditional urban morphology can be absorbed. The aesthetic function, the beauty of the historic city, is an element that further strengthens this role and establishes a hierarchy and dialogue between old and modern urban forms.

Recognising the need to manage the townscape as a ‘palimpsest’ requires the development of adequate analytical tools, based on the understanding of the complex morphological processes (including building fabric, building types, plot patterns, blocks and street patterns). While the approach promoted by Conzen and later developed by Whitehand54 allowed the development of an interesting analytical framework for the description and explanation of urban historic development processes, its practical application has been very limited.
