Urban space recovery. Landscape-beneficial solutions in new estates built in post-industrial and post-military areas in Bristol, Poznań and Gdańsk

plays a significant role in the space. Outstanding European artists were employed to design the integration of individual places with the city landscape. Apart from spatial, scenic, architectural and artistic concepts, the design also includes special environmentally friendly solutions: sustainable urban drainage, which directs the flow of rainwater from roofs into a system of irrigation canals, and adequately selected plant habitats (an extensive green wall and reed beds, which are responsible for microclimate regulation, water retention and maintenance of

Knowledge Hubs in the German Urban System: Identifying Hubs by Combining Network and Territorial Perspectives

1 Introduction The traditional geographical focus on territorial scales has been complemented in recent decades by a focus on networks and flows between cities and regions. A concern for networks is seen as a necessary supplement to a territorial perspective in order to facilitate the understanding of the processes that produce space ( Friedmann 1995 ; Taylor 2004 : 25 ff.; Hall/Pain 2006 : 10 ff.). The importance of the focus on networks arises from different processes. To a large extent the focus on networks can be explained by an increasing concern

Economic resilience. The Case Study of Pomorskie Region

disturbances ( Scheffer 2009 ). From the evolutionary perspective resilience is perceived as the ability of complex socio-ecological systems to change, adapt and transform in response to stresses and strains ( Davoudi 2013 : 302). The evolutionary resilience concept is well in tune with the post-modern paradigm. Change and mobility, attributes of this approach, are immanent features of today's world. The networks of relations and interdependencies, the spaces of flow and the growing levels of complexity require interpretative models open and flexible enough to encompass the

Regional Structural Change and Resilience
From Lignite Mining to Tourism in the Lusatian Lakeland

very much at risk, in other words: they are particularly vulnerable to overall economic developments, such as growing international competition. Entire sectors, including mining, ship construction, and the steel and textiles industries are going bankrupt or being cut back in size, even though there is nothing to take their place. Hence, it is very important to ask how and whether these regions can cope with structural change and find a way of becoming economically powerful again—in the sense implied in the term resilience. Against this background, the present paper

METI considers it necessary to promote both types of industries for the resurgence of regional economies, as well as for Japanese economy as a whole.
