The theme of scientific lectures session with international participation held by UAUIM (June the 29th-30 2009) – “]RE[GENERATE OF THE URBAN/ARCHITECTURAL LANDSCAPE, between landmarks, priorities and limits.” – is the subject of this first volume. Through valuable lecture-works selection and presentation of the participants, we are trying to open a substantial dialog regarding architectural creation. It is about discussing the esthetic identity of the present and the evolution of the style as a result of social and technological transformation ,based on ARGUMENTS.

The structure of the book (in 3 chapters ) suggests the fact that urban regeneration could be imagined:

  • through past values assimilation – LANDMARKS;
  • through establishment of some present or future PRIORITIES;
  • and through capturing of present blockage elements, defining some LIMITS (territorial limits, conception limits, legislation limits etc.).
