DEFINITIONS OF URBAN DESIGN – David GOSLING
The process of the morphology of the city had been the very major concern of the theorists. After the essay “concepts of urban design” which was prepared to review the general theories going on, in this article, the definitions which are necessary in the analysis of urban form are discussed.
In different perspectives analysed, the city described as a homogenous product of formal realms with the classification and division of activities in the citylike in the modern movement ,or as a part of a larger structure that consists of the functions of life like living, working, recreation etc.
The underlying thought, how the city can be described accordingly to formal terms, is what is the root of the cities that maket hem as in present and how the city works in formal terms to condition itself to the technologies. This will lead us to the general understanding of this essay; David Gosling includes the discussion of the notion of the third typology to his essay rather than discussing the divisions and forces in the city what are used to describe it.
The principles of typology and architecture is related with the design theory. The formal situation of construction types and the city is the result of waht and how we perceive the whole through the public realm, architecture is taken as the major force to effect the city.
The relationship between the inhabitants and physical space, the power of the inevitable being of the existing adn old, the flow of time which forces to change or develop, the importance of the identity and attraction, the importance of the spaces of perception in human scale and the unique adn dominat aspect of the public structure are what makes the definition ıf the urban morpholgy important. What makes urban morpholgy is , the power and essence of the past and present both with social and physical structures.
