“In architecture and planning of the concept of habitat – a term derived from biological and ecological studies that came to express the attempts of a generation of town planners to modernize man’s living environment, eventually representing the institutionalization of contemporary metropolitan planning. The narrative is by no means a comprehensive
historiographical review of a discipline, or an inclusive record of a term’s usage – it follows some key individuals, events and collaborations that marked the main concept’s formulation and development. As a study, it highlights certain institutions and publications as well as the influence they had on the formal expression of urban planning methods. At the same time, it addresses the efforts to define the human living environment and promote the city as the human habitat.”
