Landscape Architecture Features in Urban Junction of Sendvaris District and Klaipėda City

Rimvydas Gaudėšius

Abstract


Our visual environment consists of natural and anthropogenic landscape. In the areas of a large population concentration architectural elements.grow and strongly affect the natural landscape. Residential housing is one of the key elements changing the environment. Depending on architectural typology the buildings may obstruct weaker or stronger, or even destroy the natural landscape. Lithuania is irrelevant to high-rise building  architecture which is inherent in the population centres of big countries.  China, Japan and the United States try to build high-rise buildings. In Lithuania low-rise buildings dominate, and for this reason there is quite active and chaotic expansion of urban areas into the ones suitable for farming.. At the same time this process changes the  historically established  Lithuanian rural landscape architecture.This article examines the data on current and projected urbanization  which is formed by the detailed planning projects. Architectural features that are typical of villages and their being affected by a new urbanization wave coming from the city of Klaipeda are discussed. Recreational areas in the redesigned residential quarters are presented as a matter of urgency.
