|Abstract||As a whole, the interaction between living and working during the XX century evolves from
segregation caused by industrial revolution to different patterns of integration, determined by the
information revolution and formation of post-industrial model of urban development.
The research explores the following prototypes of the present conceptions:
- lofts – the prototype of neutral space, which may adapt different functions;
- minimized living structures – the prototype of internal schemes and live/work units;
- hybrid residential complexes, realizing different functional programs in the network of single spatial structure.
The formation of the present live/work structures is based mainly on the system of values of post- industrial model, which main characteristics are: flexibility and instability both of lifestyles and employment. Those factors make integration one of the most reasonable models of relationship between living and working – this model can provide more than simple combination of functions, because of capacity that can meet the change in demand under changing circumstances that are impossible to predict.
