Metropolizarea as a process of socio-economic contemporary category offers young researchers concerned with sustainable land planning, to provide practical solutions to meet human needs and, last but not least, to reduce environmental costs or reduction in housing gap and access to human, a very vast area of research.
After graduation quickly integrated the master entitled Geography and modeling systems in urban and rural collectives multiple projects of the Center for Environmental Research and Impact Studies Making (CCMESI) - University of Bucharest, Mr. Ovidiu Gabriel leaned hunted with particular attention to the evaluation of intermediate space located in the outskirts of urban and fringe rururbana of Bucharest. This urban-rural ecoton impresses with its dynamic post-December, contrasting mutations here claiming a careful analysis, and verification of specific evaluation methodologies.
Urban sprawl in the metropolitan area and the vital need for shaping a metropolitan area of Bucharest can not be regarded as a random process. Mr. Ovidiu Gabriel hunted through the development work on "space-functional interface between Bucharest and support its territory", opens a new avenue of scientific research, not only geographically but also multi-disciplinary teams of which, with them, to be part sociologists, planners, amenajisti, biologists, economists, agronomists, urban planners of the territory so. The author of this paper, decided to reach a scientific understanding of space and expansion densifierii built, with features of the most diverse urban and rural accessibility of proximity relations between urban periphery of metropolitan Bucharest and territory support, clear at discontinuity in the beginning concepts of geography, functional continuity, geographic interface, because in the end to explain their role in spatial planning of the metropolitan area of Bucharest.
Study how a spatial-functional Interfaces can be applied to any administrative-territorial units, but the metropolis, especially if a country is the capital, offers variety and uniqueness issues, more so in terms of an economic system translarii based on the dominant state ownership of private property to the generalized perception of environmental issues exogenous to the endogenous. Honors the author is offered a model for analysis of spatial-functional interefetei of Bucharest and support its territory, creating a true process of restructuring the relationship between city and space and support that can be called without vital area of the metropolis wrong.
Pertinent analysis of the demographic changes that were added to the beginning of this century and millennium destructurarii industrial sites, deindustrialisation Bucharest, functional changes in the urban periphery, leads to the design that externality in their rural neighborhood. Recent dynamics of urban space in Bucharest presents the author's point of view of a facet with obvious domestic social projects and environmental conditions.
Another novelty is found in the pages of the evaluation work space expansion of Bucharest in relation to the axis of movement and land prices, factors that by 1990, in the absence of a sustainable territorial planning, development of coherent strategies, led to the changes evident its urban and functional ecotonului suburban periphery.
Bucharest suburbs functional complication is demonstrated by Mr. Ovidiu Gabriel hunted with accuracy demanding researcher. Evaluation of excessive ruralitatii Bucharest urban periphery, which tends to diminish after 1990, is a special methodological contribution, the author rightly considering a cause of mosaic functional interface between the city and its support area. Urban sprawl is not limited in the sense of the author, only the new or the conversion rezidentialul industrial use in commercial and clearly demonstrated its contribution vulnerabilizarii draw attention to changing social environment and land use, the removal of large areas of arable without ecological footprint calculate local times its projection in quality of life and living costs.
It is necessary to admit frankly that to appreciate the results approach Mr. Ovidiu Gabriel hunted, it is not sufficient to simply reading the text of the paper, but requires a knowledge of the realities on the ground profile and diversity of economic units,Administrative structures limits in territory considered "interface" between two worlds that are in economic competition and functional evidence for the benefits of which are not particularly enjoy the natives, but especially with membership alohtonii geographical area of the most curious.
Consider worthy appreciated that throughout the paper Mr. Ovidiu Gabriel hunted, with great intellectual sophistication, to leave the field open to further scientific investigations, both geographically and many other groups of researchers, offering them a database and multiple milestones in understanding the complex issue of space between Bucharest and support its territory.
