Future Opportunities for Spatial Development of the University in Line with Contemporary City Concepts

Abstract

The university as a knowledge-intense space-also referred to as the brain of the city-is one of the key urban factors whose role is gradually being repositioned in the city and society during its social and urban transformation. New concepts of cities have entered professional discourses, and six categories were found to be conceptually distinct enough to be seen as supported by a specific body of theories. The research goal for this study is to define three of these-the sustainable city, smart city and resilient city—and the evolving university-city co-influencing relationship. The main methods used for this study are the analytical and descriptive methods, and the research materials are drawn from wide-ranging literature, such as books, research articles, published analyses, reports, urban plans, and other documents.
