Modernist neighbourhoods were created with a high degree of technical and technological skills, with a great sense of the aesthetic, and with a lot of empathy for the needs of ordinary people (social responsibility). Residential buildings with cautiously thought‐out apartment solutions, carefully positioned into large public green areas, provide an opportunity to identify the qualities of the built environment that are essential for a pleasant living.
Everyone should be aware of the importance of a comprehensively organised housing estate, where a well thought out arrangement of the open spaces is an important part. For the quality of the living environment, in addition to good architecture, a pleasant surrounding is indispensable. Any of Ljubljana’s neighbourhoods presented in the chapter “case-studies” could become an example of good urban-planning practise.
These parts of Ljubljana constitute Slovenian but also European rich cultural heritage and diversity. Some of them represent icons of the city, and others are a little less outstanding. But all of them have a crucial role in satisfying basic needs of their residents. That is why it is essential to preserve them in their best shape, as vital and prospective parts of Ljubljana’s urban life.
