Influence of green architecture objects on the ecological and tourist attractiveness of the urban environment




Green Architecture Objects, Urban Environment, Landscape Design, Ecology, Tourist Attractiveness


The development of large cities is associated with the deterioration of the environment, which pushes humanity to become aware of environmental priorities. As a result, cities have an urgent need to maximize the natural component of the urban environment. The article proposes that the design of green landscaping and architecture objects seeks to minimize the negative impact of construction on nature. The objective of this article is to evaluate the design characteristics of landscape design objects and green architecture as a means of ecological and tourist attractiveness of the urban environment. The literature review supports that there is a trend in the development of the modern urban environment thanks to the combination of urban and natural elements, which generates a new type of emotional and aesthetic impact on human beings and increases the environmental attractiveness of the urban environment for both city residents and tourists. Based on the case study method, the authors create a basic scheme for the probable implementation of the design of landscaping elements in an urban environment and the use of green architecture objects. The study of the experience of landscaping and design of green architecture objects allows us to conclude that the design of landscaping and green architecture objects is a new stage in the development of modern urban planning, based on the principles of attraction of natural components to the urban environment.
