Looking at the various types of contemporary urban configurations, town and city centres continue to represent a resource and potential for structuring of a centralised system and for the organisation of more densely urbanised areas. While in the past the recognisability and individuality of town and city centres have been a sign of their uniqueness in an ‘insular’ urban design, today they form part of an more varied ‘town centre’ which runs across the entire urban range, the protagonists of a project to change the composition of towns and cities. As themes or systems of urban restructuring, town and city centres become a planning construct used to make selections from the materials of the existing town or city of those which, on the basis of their differentiating qualities which express their importance, are candidates for interpretation in a new role, with permanent and long-term profiles.
Keywords: Town and city centres; contemporary towns and cities; urban planning
