Abstract

The quality of the urban environment has a direct impact on humans. The criteria for assessing the qualities of the urban environment are extensive and not always measurable. The purpose of this study was to find and test methods to measure urban environment qualities that can be used by architects when working in an urban space. Urban typomorphology parameters and methods were picked out in the literature, and these then were used to analyze a specific territory to find the building parameters that are preferable for conservation and use in the development of urban areas. The study sets out sizes of urban elements and distances between them, as well as their decorative characteristics which, among other factors, can positively influence a person.
