Architecture and Urbanism, MA diploma project


The aim of this diploma thesis is to define architectural and urbanistic procedures used for urban scene design of public spaces in the cities during their problematic situation today. It presents urbanistic design procedure using the theatre point of view. There are historical contexts of theatre and urbanism briefly described, their present situation analyzed and especially different and common items defined in the thesis. The conclusions derived from these results are that a scene of public space cannot be, by its nature, a theatre scene. The reason is that there does not exist  conscious current relationship of actor-spectator. This scene of public space could (and should) use elements of theatre namely to support its ephemeral  part. This part is for public space and its scene essential as also concluded in this diploma thesis.
