ABSTRACT

Garden city is an idea regarded as one of the reasons for the spontaneous sprawl of buildings around the city. The paper compares the assumptions described in the book “Garden Cities of Tomorrow” with the way of the investment implementation on the outskirts of Łódź, in the buffer zone of the Łagiewnicki Forest. The analysis of the spatial structure of the newly urbanized open areas, made on the basis of aerial photography and introduction of geodesic division shows that the emerging housing development is not being inspired by the idea of the garden city. The newly urbanized areas are being built up in any manner without designed spatial composition, road system and public transport system and ignoring the use of landscape. The suburban housing emerges as individual investments, inhabitants of urban sprawl are not active in the life of local communities. The current situation requires the creation of effective urban planning doctrine. The guidelines described by Howard may serve as an inspiration for improving the quality of space in suburban areas, providing urban standards which are used require a quality space while implementing new investments.
