Is social mixing of tenures a solution for public housing estates?

The article reviews 11 primary studies that examine the impact of social mix on public housing estates. In a growing number of countries policy-makers view social mix as the key mechanism to address the problems often associated with disadvantaged public housing estates – unemployment, anti-social behaviour, poor educational performance and high levels of crime. It is argued that by dissipating the concentration of poverty and exposing public housing tenants to more mainstream residents, the

QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE RESEARCH IN HOUSING AREAS: CONTEMPORARY HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS IN SILESIAN METROPOLITAN AREA, POLAND

Between 2000 and 2010 housing development in Poland changed dramatically. Local development plans released large rural areas on the outskirts of most cities for single-family housing. As a result, there are many new low-density housing estates and very few high-density estates within city centres. The paper refers to a research method that has been developed to measure and compare various housing developments. The method can be used to show both density indicators and a general overview of

PRUITT IGOE VS CITY OF THE FUTURE

civilization. The eloquent images of the liquidation of Priutt-Igoe, carry a message of a disruption of the nature by man [20]. Attempts were made to correct the errors of modernist era. The 1950s corresponded to the period of redevelopment of the urban space. In this time, housing estates that were left empty during the day and industrial and service estates that were empty during the day were designed and built. The measures that were followed were guided by planning with a strict separation of areas

SILESIAN CONURBATION AS A POLYCENTRIC STRUCTURE OF URBAN DISTRICTS

The Silesian conurbation consists of cities, which in many aspects function as one metropolitan organism. This paper is an attempt to characterise the structure of the Silesian conurbation not as composed of cities, but as a system of districts, in the context of the theory of polycentric systems and the importance of quarters for modern urban areas. The authors present a model of the Silesian Conurbation as a set of quarters of various characteristics: housing estates, local centres
