Abstract [en]

The discussion on sustainable urban development is ubiquitous these days. Concerning the more specific field of urban design and urban morphology we can identify a movement from a first generation of research and practice, primarily addressing climate change, and a second generation, broadening the field to also encompass biodiversity. The two have quite different implications for urban design and urban morphology. The first, stressing the integration of more advanced technological systems to the urban fabric, such as energy and waste disposal systems, but more conspicuously, public and private transport systems, often leading to rather conventional design solutions albeit technologically enhanced.

The second generation ask for a more direct involvement of urban form, asking the question: how are future urban designs going to harbor not only social and economic systems, which they have always done, but ecological as well, that is, how are we in research on urban form, as support for future practice in urban design, develop knowledge that bridges the ancient dichotomy between human and ecological systems. This paper presents, firstly, a conceptual discussion on this topic, based in Resilience Theory and Urban Morphology, secondly, the layout of a principal research field towards a spatial morphology of urban social-ecological systems, where strategic research tasks are identified.
