A Cultural Heritage, Environmental Preservation Master Plan: Post- Occupancy Evaluation of Emporion Park Design

Magda Saura


In spite of market pragmatics, the urban,
architectural and environmental protection and conservation
ideas of the Emporion master plan were quickly implemented in
actual planning. Previous research conducted at Technical
University of Catalonia set the design requirements for policymaking
required in any sort of master plan. One of the goals was
to predict a successful use of space through natural environments
and historic landscapes. Social and cultural factors determined
one set of parameters for environmental programming and
evaluation; namely, how people use both recreational and tourist
infrastructure through historic places. The Getty Grant Program
sponsored university research. University research today
develops further through a longitudinal study that started once
the plan was executed and partly built in 1992.
