ABSTRACT

Urban productive landscape has become a form of urban development increasingly separating from typical urban forms. Diagnosed and fairly well analyzed in the case of American, African cities and more often – European ones, forms of development between what we now understand as the concept of a city, and what is differing it from rural landscape areas. Basing on definitions developed by researchers such as U. Giseke (agroforopolis, beautiful productive landscapes), A. Viljoen, K. Bohn and J. Howe (productive urban landscapes), F. Lohrberg, L. Scazzosi and A. Timpe, and the typology of urban agriculture as an element forming urban structure of the city developed by Author, the paper presents a mechanism for assessing the state and form of urban - rural landscape with particular regard to the state of Polish cities. Due to the specific history of the phenomenon in urbanism, which we now define as urban agriculture, in Poland, also their spatial forms today remain in a large extent formally and quantitatively different from world solutions. The article aims at approximating the state of maintenance and the initial valorisation of these elements of urban agriculture in Poland, which will be in future relevant for its further directions of development.
