title Urban Voids as Communication Gaps
source ENVISIONING ARCHITECTURE: IMAGE, PERCEPTION AND COMMUNICATION OF HERITAGE [ISBN 978-83-7283-681-6],Lodz University of Technology, 23-26 September 2015, pp.466-474
summary The paper deals with the problem of urban voids and their influence on the recognition of Lodz 19th-centry architectural heritage. Lodz is a post-industrial city with scores of wasteland in the very centre due to urban sprawl, downfall of the industry, and depopulation. Semiotic apparatus is used to analyse the role of urban voids in neglecting the national heritage of the cityscape by the inhabitants. It seems that urban voids may be treated as communication gaps. The paper proposes to restore legible articulation of the streetscape by adopting the disused and presently oversupplied urban areas for temporary land use and interim landscape, so that the urban continuum and national heritage become readable and appreciated.
