    INTEGRAL URBAN DEVELOPMENT OF THE CITY OF ZAGREB - strategies, economy, design

    Modern cities are evolving in a continuous movement between planning intentions and entropy. The former "great narratives", in which there was a firm long-term vision of urban development, are being replaced by flexible and open concepts that can accept different fragments. On the basis of which parameters can we think about the sustainable future of Zagreb? How does macroeconomics help us not only to predict, but also to chart development trends? What are the contemporary focuses of architectural research, and which already today show indications of the future of cities? What new tools help integral, multidisciplinary design, especially large-scale design? What are the priorities for the development of Zagreb and on the basis of which values should its future be considered?
