Water in the city of the future

Jacek Gyurkovich

Abstrakt

The future of cities and societies is burdened with uncertainty as well as numerous unknowns which make it difficult to predict it precisely. In the author’s opinion, the basis for actions in the formation of an urban housing environment at present and in the future can be some timeless values related to the broadly understood ecology of a space of residence. Messestadt Riem in Munich makes a model example of consistent planning and investment activities which aim at obtaining a high-quality sustainable living environment in harmony with nature and a sustainable social environment. It is also a prime example of town-planning and architectural solutions related to the philosophy of treating water as a vital resource conducive to optimal utilization.
