Synopsis
A city consists of a number of ‘Units’, the most import of them is human being. We became a family. Family became a village. A village became a town. A town became a city. And we live in a city. Every city has its own history, which encompasses evolvement of the city from the beginning to now. A city has been formed on the basis of human needs. In other words, it can be dilapidated once it has no more to give us what we need. Urban growth, which used to rely on society’s activities, trades or the public’s specific behaviours, has started to show a productivity pattern that would possibly result in urban gentrification due to lack of public’s appreciation of long term view towards urban renewal and the need for massive financial resources. It has become apparent that it needs to be controlled by not only government or local authorities but also the one whom lives and will live in the city. Urban regeneration came from an ideology that the most of cities in the world possesses greater amount of land which has been underused or left in a really poor condition even though it used to be so fertile and popular that it grew quickly to be able to accommodate so many residents and which we should look to bring back to what it should be. This session not only look at a regeneration process in terms of urban planning and sustainable measurements but also touch on energy and environment. Successful precedents in Denmark and other European countries would supplement the latter. In addition, it would be emphasized how important role the community-led planning process and study plays in urban regeneration development.
