Last but not least, one of the desirable side effects of designing with the above in mind would hopefully be hinting towards the fact that the current hectic, queuing oriented airport spaces can become history, opening the gates for a positive and conscious experiential travel.</p> 2020-12-19T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 The copyright for articles in this journal is retained by the author(s), with first publication rights granted to the journal. http://www.jauh.ro/index.php/JAUH/article/view/41 Aesthetic integrations in the restoration process of mural painting 2021-03-17T11:04:46+02:00 Inna Ostrovsca innaandriana15@gmail.com <p>Respect for the authenticity of the work of art, recognizability and reversibility of an intervention are benchmarks on the basis of which different solutions and restoration technologies have been developed over time. But there is no solution / method that can be used systematically. Each work of art is unique and requires particular decisions. Only through a critical and philological approach to the restoration project and a proper implementation of all execution phases can an adequate and consistent representation of the image be obtained.</p> <p>Mural paintings are an integral part of the structure of the building, but the first and main function of the paintings is to convey ideas and symbols, which they represent through images.</p> <p>In the process of restoration of the mural paintings one of the most important stages is the aesthetic integration. This stage allows the restoration of the visual reading of the painting and the reconstruction of the potential oneness of the work of art. Contemporary chromatic integration methods and techniques solve many problems regarding the treatment of gaps in the restoration process of mural painting, but in some cases, they can be inefficient.</p> <p>This article discusses the importance and ethical limits of aesthetic integrations in the process of restoration of mural painting. The values ​​and the symbolic functions, which play an important role in decisions on the aesthetic treatment of the mural paintings. The importance of restoring the narrative content of the mural painting with the aim of improving the perception of the image represented on the picture by the spectators.</p> 2020-12-19T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2021 The copyright for articles in this journal is retained by the author(s), with first publication rights granted to the journal. http://www.jauh.ro/index.php/JAUH/article/view/51 Intervention proposal into the fragment of landscape of Bezdin Monastery, part of the ”Lunca Mureșului” cultural landscape 2021-03-17T11:04:46+02:00 Alexandru Todirica artodirica@gmail.com Alexandra Sabo alexandra.sabo30@gmail.com <p>The position of the Bezdin Monastery and its relation with the natural landscape of Lunca Mureșului resulted in considering the built ensemble as part of a landscape fragment, as a component of the cultural landscape found within the limits of the Lunca Mureșului Natural Park. Once the idea of reviving the monastery complex came up, a question of the need for intervention on the surrounding landscape was raised, intervention made by integrating the free plot from the church’s property. The approach of the intervention proposal is related to the overall image that is to be obtained and aims to improve the already existing landscape fragment, by mixing the existing layers with new elements and emphasizing the value on both the whole ensemble and the cultural landscape to which it belongs.</p> 2020-12-19T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 The copyright for articles in this journal is retained by the author(s), with first publication rights granted to the journal. http://www.jauh.ro/index.php/JAUH/article/view/50 The sensitive city 2021-03-17T11:04:47+02:00 Raluca Hurmuz ralucahurmuz@gmail.com Eduard Mario Gubics gubicseduard@gmail.com <p>Exploring the city through the urban sensory is a relevant subject for contemporary research regarding the complexities of built environment. Over time, theorists and practitioners having different educational backgrounds have questioned in what way urban space and social structures are interrelated and how to address the issues they raised perspective in order to determine the proper problem-solving methods.</p> <p>The main focus of this paper is on analyzing literature related to human and urban perception and comparing the 19<sup>th</sup> and 20<sup>th</sup> century ideas that have a great influence on how cities are documented today. In order to do that, a multidimensional approach has been used: for the theoretical dimension of the city George Simmel and Emile Durkheim are relevant whereas the literary dimension of it is well illustrated by Benjamin Walter and Henri Lefebvre. The cognitive and social dimensions of the city are eloquently portrayed by Juhani Pallasmaa, Kevin Lynch or Jane Jacobs. Although the physical features of a city are important for how people perceive their surroundings, this paper examines in what way both visual comprehension and social interactions define spatial perception by creating a sense of place.</p> <p>To select the most relevant concepts and approaches to urban sensory, personal observations, literature survey and qualitative research have been used. To determine the relationships and connections between the built environment and its inhabitants, further studies will be pursued through the process of planning and developing a research proposal for dissertation.&nbsp;</p> <p>The topic discussed in this paper is relevant as it concludes with the idea that cities mirror social realities while humans are struggling to adapt the fast-changing environment. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> 2020-12-19T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 The copyright for articles in this journal is retained by the author(s), with first publication rights granted to the journal. http://www.jauh.ro/index.php/JAUH/article/view/52 Measures for the regulation of surfaces outside of built-up areas. Case study: Orăștioara de Sus, Hunedoara County. 2021-03-17T11:04:47+02:00 Emanuel Tamas emanuelm13@gmail.com Anca-Iulia Tac ancaiulia95@yahoo.com <p>The present article studies the provisions of the projects and programs for the extra-urban area of ​​Orăștioara de Sus, Hunedoara county, with the purpose of drawing up the Local Urbanization Regulation related to the General Urbanistic Plan of the commune. The research approach identifies and delimits from the topographic point of view the space under investigation, from the point of view of the relation between the natural (relief, vegetation, fauna) and the anthropic (rich architectural, archaeological and historical heritage), gathered in the common, unifying concept , of the cultural landscape. After an analysis of the similarities and differences existing in these documents, the measures that can be included in the urban plan through their regulatory character are concluded.</p> <p>The regulation and organization of the space through the General Urban Plan has the purpose of identifying, harmonizing and highlighting the elements of the natural and cultural heritage, together with the anthropic potential of the area, so as to ensure the full harmony of man with nature.</p> 2020-12-19T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 The copyright for articles in this journal is retained by the author(s), with first publication rights granted to the journal. http://www.jauh.ro/index.php/JAUH/article/view/30 Urban agriculture - the case studies of Havana and New York City 2021-03-17T11:04:47+02:00 Tudor Traian Bojan bojantudortraian@gmail.com Oana Pusco pusco.oanaa@gmail.com <p class="western" align="JUSTIFY"><span style="color: #00000a;"><span style="font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: small;">The article studies two different approaches to urban agriculture. In the first one the implementation of urban agriculture in the city of Havana, Cuba was one of pure necessity, in which the state created all the premises for it to flourish. The degree of mobilization from the population is high, being essential for food security.</span></span></span><span style="color: #222222;"><span style="font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: small;">The second case study is related to New York, where the implementation takes place</span></span></span> <span style="color: #222222;"><span style="font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: small;">over a longer period of time, and the concept is getting traction with the involvement from residents and local communities in various neighborhoods with initiatives in this regard. There is support and involvement from the local authorities, the areas of the city with potential for urban agriculture are established, analyzes are made to determine and under what form it could be applied while solving existing problems of urban life. In both cases, urban agriculture has been successfully implemented, being a permanent or temporary layer in the cultural and green fabric.</span></span></span></p> 2020-12-19T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 The copyright for articles in this journal is retained by the author(s), with first publication rights granted to the journal.
