Abstract

The importance and necessity of green spaces in cities is a fact that has been extensively researched in urban sustainability, landscape ecology and architecture (Tzoulas et al., 2007, Leal del Castillo, 2004, Moisset and Paris, 2005, Higueras, 2006). Most of the literature about green spaces in urban
landscapes is mainly focused in the impact that urbanization has had in the fragmentation and depleition of green spaces (Walker, 1999). Investigations have been conducted to analyzing the importance that green spaces in general play in providing opportunities and adaptability to urban landscapes (Elmqvist et al., 2004, Colding, 2007). However, the analysis of the role of green spaces in the
resilience of the built environment of urban landscapes has not been equally developed. The focus of this research is to situate green spaces within the evolution of the morphology of urban landscapes in order to observe how they are vinculated to resilience dynamics. With the intention to achieved that goal,
it is proposed to analyze urban landscapes as resilient assemblages (Garcia et al., 2012, Muminovic et al., 2012), where green spaces are assembled within the built environment in order to observe their interactions. The analysis describes interrelationships between changes in the structures of public and domestic green spaces within urban landscapes in Auckland and Tokyo. The final aim is to make a contribution to the identification of elements of urban landscapes that are related with resilience dynamics of change.
