The role of values in the development of a city
ResumenThe paper provides two examples which illustrate how different values can materialise themselves throughout the cityscape. These images allow us to formulate a conclusion - a postulate regarding the need to revise our hierarchy of values. It is the opinion of the author that returning to traditional values can provide the physical space of cities with a chance to develop while taking into account the wealth of cultural heritage. The opposite can result in the worrying tendency to construct public spaces in a manner that is dominated by economic principles.
