Perceptions on “Smart” Planning in Timişoara
Starting from the experience gained in urban planning, Lecturer Sorin Pavel, PhD, the guest of the CGR Meetings, aroused the participants’ attention with a presentation associated with the dynamics of some territorial phenomena in Timișoara. He highlighted, through his own examples, the strengths and dysfunctions of the city of Timişoara. At the same time, the major urban projects that characterized Timișoara were reviewed, but also the new challenges brought by the urban solutions proposed as an alternative to some dysfunctions in the city. The comparisons with some planning elements in Cluj-Napoca were aspects discussed during the event, the emphasis falling on the need for a dialogue between local actors and prioritizing investments.
