Protection and guidelines for the build image in towns in Slovenia
The research project, Protecting and Directing the Identity if Slovene Towns includes 48 urban centres. Towns were presented textually and graphically on maps (scale 1:10.000). An attempt of a typological classification based on design features and its final proposals are shown. The research vastly increases the scope of former projects focusing in centres of old inner cities. It points out that the formal features of towns has changed because of suburbanisation, new industrial zones, communications, functionalistic blocks, high-rise buildings, commercialisation of centres and other reasons. The proposed guide-lines are based on principles of ecology, reurbanisation, humanization, contextualism and emphasizing the identity of out towns.
