The two ring road complexes of Gdansk
The urban structure of Gdańsk city centre is determined by two ring road complexes. The first of them, the Gdańsk Ring, has been designed by Hermann Josef Stübben as a result of a defortification at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. This new modern zone of the city centre was destroyed like the rest of Gdańsk in the end of World War Two and had not been reconstructed as a result of de-Germanization of the Recovered Territories. The second ring structure has been formed as a green belt in place of the medieval fortification system of the Main Town during its post-war reconstruction according to the principles of the 'Polish school of conservation' formulated by Jan Zachwatowicz. The purpose of this paper is to present the value of both Gdańsk ring road complexes which urban rehabilitation would have a great influence on structure of the entire city centre area.
