ABSTRACT
The aim of this article is to propose methodological layers, developed during PhD research, which explore the impact of transparency in relation to the transformations of the city. First two parts of the process investigate the impact of transparency by decoding (in) visible cityscape transformations, towards mapping the fragments of intersections between individual atmospheres. After merging static and dynamic activity states of the phenomenon of transparency, the fourth layer shifts perception by zooming in and out – from the city as a whole, towards its individual spatial values and specific aspects. Analysis ends with (de)fragmentation reading via drawing as a critical tool for resolving spatial conflicts. Layer by layer, the proposed methodology determines the influence of the phenomenon of transparency on architectural design process, and its importance for rethinking and understanding the problems and potentials of cityscape transformations.

KEY WORDS
