A HISTORICAL VIEW ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SUSTAINABLE CITY.
STRATEGIES OF SUSTAINABILITY IN EUROPEAN URBAN DESIGN THEORY FROM THE
16TH TO THE 20TH CENTURY

 
Cities play a definitive crucial role in the on-going discourse on
sustainability, due to the fact that more than half of the world's
population is living in urban agglomerations, causing a concomitant
concentration of energy use and refuse production. However, in spite of
its current urgency, the ideal of a sustainable city is not a new
concept; it has a long history built on a variety of ideas on the
improvement of the urban environment, which have been rethought and
revised over the course of the last century. In fact, many of the
considerations on the improvement of the urban environment that mark
today's ideas on sustainable urban design can already be found in the
urban development tracts and political, philosophical and social reform
texts in medical, economic or political treatises of past centuries.
The arguments of today's sustainability debate, namely, the permanence
of structure, stability of the substance, and social balance, as well
as providing construction material, ground sealing, water supply,
drainage, ventilation, hygiene, garbage removal, traffic, greening, and
land and energy needs will be the focuses of this session.
The section is intended to be of interest to researchers from the
historical and cultural disciplines, sociology, the political sciences
as well as the natural and technical sciences.
