"Urban planning evolution and the way of development of the housing in that area" Vaso Analiti

Agios Ioannis Rentis is a very interesting place as far as its urban planning and housing is concerned.

There is a very big variety in the forms of the houses : there are old farm houses, refugee settlements built in 1920’s,  buildings made by the Workers Housing Organization in 1950’s, new blocks of flats and detached houses, but also small, poor houses for the refugees that live in the municipality nowadays.

The topic of this lecture is the history of the urban planning and the way of development of the housing in that area –especially of the social housing, through the economical and social conditions.

The main period that is mentioned is the 20th century, when two very important facts took place in Greece and had effect on the housing : the war of Asia Minor in  1922 and the industrialization.
