Nell’ambito delle attività del Corso Integrato di Tecnica Urbanistica, del Corso di Laurea in Scienze dell’Architettura
il giorno mercoledì 27 aprile 2011, Aula ALFA (Via Marengo, 2 – Ore 11)
il Dr. Kiril Stanilov, Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at University College London, terrà il seminario dal titolo:
“Tracing metropolitan growth”
The Seminar discusses methods of investigating urban growth patterns illustrated with a number of case studies from the UK, USA and Europe. These studies rely on detailed historical data to reconstruct the physical evolution of metropolitan areas over extended periods of time with unusually high level of spatial and temporal resolution. The objective of this research is to understand the main forces shaping the patterns of urban growth. The findings provide support for a hypothesis that the spatial relationships between land uses and the physical environment are remarkably consistent through time. This conclusion suggests the existence of an underlying genetic code of urban growth, which determines the spatial signature of land development regardless of the specifics of historical context.
Kiril Stanilov is a Marie Curie research fellow at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at University College London and a senior research associate at the Martin Centre for Architectural and Urban Studies at University of Cambridge. He holds a PhD in Urban Design and Planning from the University of Washington.
Kiril Stanilov’s research interests are centred on explorations of contemporary patterns of urban growth and change, and the role played by public policies in shaping urban form transformations. His book publications include Twenty Years of Transition, The Post-Socialist City, Suburban Form, and Confronting Suburbanization.
