The Strategy of Building a Town in the 21st century
Hajdúböszörmény is a town, which used to flourish in the Middle Ages shown by its settlement structure i.e. a unique ringed structure with complete circular streets.
At the beginning of the 21st century this once flourising town has to cope with thousands of problems just like the region and Europe as well.
The lack of capital, unemployment, impoverishment, the decrease of population, the lack of tourism, the missing identity, the shortage of heating energy, inland waters, underground water, flying dust, the lack of future town structure image.
What is to be done with a town like this?

The project is seeking to answer it by regarding the mutual effect of micro-and megastructures, the ranges of economy, town structure and ecology.
It is obvious that space models of smaller settlements have to be formed in harmony with the future courses of the national economy.
The active economic model of the decentralized national economy is vital only when the settlement strategies are prepared to face the forthcoming new challenged.
The task is to show in the sample project which settlement size and structure is best to solve the problems of such settlements in a self-regulating way all over the world.

GREEN CROWN ring sample project

According to my calculations the ideal number of population in a future settlement is 30.000.

By continuing this ringed town structure Hajdúböszörmény can become the sample project of the 21st century. In the designed sample project Hajdúböszörmény is reorganized by “space ringed steps”.Each designed ring builds up the sample project by making simple “logical steps” in circles.
The following new space rings offer ecological, sociological, economic and cultural facilities/possibilities.

1. Mediaeval space ring: the core of the town

2. Present space ring: surrounding town “tissue”

3. New recreation space ring:

Hydro-economy: the problems of underground water can be solved by artificial lakes
which build an ecological ring around the town
Wildlife: forests, groves with flora and fauna characteristic of the region
Recreation: parks for rest. sports, free time and therapeutical facilites

4. New economic space ring:
Infrastructural and traffic ring in a three-kilometre-circle with junctions to country roads,
motorways
Sites for industrial, economic and commercial activities

5. GREEN CROWN space ring:
Energy and forest economy
The extreme space ring is a green forest crown settled in a five hundred-metre-wide and
3.5 kilometre radiant circle.
The forest supplies the public institutions with renewed energy year by year.
Health protection: the green crown absorbs the flying dust
Ecology: stops the erosion of the soil, decreases the velocity of wind as a fortress,
defends the ancient flora and fauna.
