Vorontsova A.V. - The development of urban territories and spaces with mixed functional application pp. 36-46

The author examines the rules of land utilization and city development in Russia with examples of the areas with mixed functional application of territories. The subject of the research includes the study of the methods of formation of areas with mixed functional application of territories. Special attention is given to the development of such areas for the purpose of their implementation into the rules of land utilization and city development of Kazan.

Boltaevskii A.A., Pryadko I.P. - Urban water reservoirs: the role of hydro objects in formation of biosphere- compatible urban space pp. 43-50


Abstract: The subject of this research is the urban water reservoirs within the framework of development of the modern anthropogenic civilization. Since the ancient times, water was not only a scarce resource, but also a notion of mythological and philosophical knowledge. Water environment played a major role in establishment of the first nations, as well as in development of economic relations by means of trade. Today, due to the demographic outbreak and environmental problems, in a number of regions we can observe a deficit of fresh water that eventually can cause the “water wars” in the future. Currently, the majority of humanity resides in cities in the conditions of artificial environment, and this is why the role of green environment and urban water reservoirs has increased. The relevance of the problem is substantiated by the continuing development of “polluting” productions within cities’ suburbs, urbanism, and change of needs of city residents.
