Annotation

The project focuses on the topics of residential mobility, residential preferences and the way they are being shaped.

  • In recent years, we can observe slight changes in this area. In addition to the still significant suburbanization process, reurbanization tendencies are also beginning to emerge and socialist housing estates are also gaining young families. In order to fully understand these tendencies, the project studies the process of selecting a new home in three different types of areas of the Prague metropolitan region (inner city, housing estate, and suburb). The main objective of the project is to find out what are the differences in residential preferences and the process of selecting a new home between residents living in the inner city, suburb and housing estate.

  • The aim is to identify and explain the links between the type and location of the residential development and the characteristics of the population (in terms of socio-economic and demographic status, lifestyle, values, etc.). The research is focused on young families. The significance of the topic studied is justified by the necessity of reflecting the needs, requirements and ideas of people in urban planning (e.g., in connection with the current stress on the densification of the city).
