The Linear Tree Structures of Cities

Abstract: The Linear Tree Structures of Cities issue of this article is illustrated on the example of the First Czechoslovak Republic urbanization of Prague 6, where these structures were implemented as an integral part of the regulation plan of newly born democracy. Analyses of Linear Tree Structures were carried out in selected areas of Prague's Dejvice and surrounding quarters of Bubeneč, Střešovice and Hanspaulka that best correspond to the original urban concept, generated by the Regulatory and Building Plan of the capital city of Prague in 1930 (Fig.2 below), although it was not completely fulfilled or had been modified at a later date. The aim of this paper is to show whether and to what extent the existing elements of Linear Tree Structures, stemming from the almost one hundred year old concept of city regulation, have been preserved. Second aim is to find and prove, how they can be functional today, in regard to aesthetics and quality of living at present time, with a special interest in the significant ecosystem services of these natural elements and their structured robust systems. Therefore, a number of analyzes and measurements were carried out, the results of which are summarized and commented, including relevant table, graph and GIS map scheme.
