A multidimensional analysis of spatial order in public spaces: a case study of the town Morąg, Poland

1 Introduction 1.1 Public spaces Since ancient times, the definition of public space has been nearly identical to that of municipal space ( Low and Smith, 2013 ). For this reason, public spaces are often referred to as a city’s or town’s genetic code, which contains important historical information. The above applies particularly to centrally located public spaces in historic towns whose urban form has evolved throughout the centuries. Old Town districts are often the most characteristic and representative element of a town which brings together members of

Public Space and the Efficiency of the New Residential Zones in Small Slovak Towns and Villages


The paper deals with the issue of creation of new public spaces in emerging residential areas in rural settlements and small towns. The developers of the new residential zones currently pursue their private interests and the specific rural structure is complemented by isolated residential complexes without relation to the centre of the settlement and structure of the main public spaces. The hypothesis that the efficient residential structure can be achieved even at a higher percentage of active and vibrant public spaces is verified at eleven case studies in three selected settlements (Bernolákovo, Brezno, Chorvátsky Grob – Čierna Voda). The examined proposals (case studies) showed that despite the wide application of social and recreational public spaces and the large percentage of green area per capita, the site coverage coefficient was comparable and the population density was even higher than the current standards of development. In conclusion, it is possible to say, that the creation of public spaces in a residential zone does not adversely affect the efficiency of the new development. On the contrary, it brings a lot of benefits.
