As many other historic centres which underwent profound changes the old Algiers had to accommodate contemporary socio-economic, cultural and technological activities. The Casbah, old town of Algiers has been subjected to these regrettable and irreversible changes and is left today with a physically and functionally damaged urban fabric. This thesis is concerned with the coexistence and reconciliation of the old core with the present and future urban fabric in order to ensure that its links with the modern urban development are maintained. This is therefore a study on the old core of Algiers which explores its historical growth and urban structure, underlying the conflict between old and new parts. It establishes at the end a general framework for its future development.
