Spatial Qualities of Built Environment as a part of Sustainability Agenda. Case Studies of Prague Residential Complexes

Ing. arch. Jaromír Hainc, Ph.D., prof. Ing. arch. Jan Jehlík

Spatial layout and structure of the city are elements of spatial configuration with time span of centuries. The understanding of spatial layout or street network is one of the key points in sustainable design of new developments as well as in renewals of abounded areas in the cities. Therefore new set of analyses based on Space Syntax tools and methods was chosen to characterize and sort qualities of spaces. Three different levels – scales of analyses from city to neighbourhood should allow us to precisely describe and understand shifts in spatial (and also social) meanings and relations. Based on the research of the currently built Prague residential complexes one can conclude, that the hypothesis of low connectivity at the local and global level was not proven. There is a high level of local connectivity and hierarchy in the complexes studied plus there is a very good connection to the main city streets and arterial roads.
