FILLING THE VOIDS: URBAN REGENERATION
The intent of this Master Thesis is to provide an insight into issues and potential of urban areas which lost their function over time and became useless or abandoned – urban voids. This paper tends to clarify those areas based on works of architectural and urban theorists, it attempts to create a simple classification and suggests how to proceed towards regeneration. Furthermore, it aims to stress the importance of these misunderstood urban holes as a different perspective on the development of today’s already overcrowded cities. The paper further discusses the concept of urban regeneration and its tools in practice. Finally, by providing a methodology for applying the practices of urban regeneration on urban voids as areas of intervention, it aims to show the immense potential for future of architectural and urban planning hidden within these forgotten areas.
