This research deals with several problems of the contemporary city – problem of administrative boundaries and relationship between the city and its public spaces.1 Cities are ever increasing, often uncontrolled and rarely planned as a whole, almost always without thinking about city’s identity. Furthermore the problem of boundaries in general is evident in the periphery which is undeveloped edge of the city. In Croatia boundaries are an obstacle to urban planning, they make it difficult to overview the entire space of the city because its illogical divisions. What is an urban landscape and how it can contribute to development of the new image of the 21st century city is a current theme of planning (eg. Grand Paris considerations). At the Faculty of Zagreb cities from different regions are being researched through a series of workshops in Landscape Architecture and Urbanism. The aim is to reject administrative boundaries in order to create new area of a city based on the landscape. We analysed current trends in urban planning with the landscape as a main resource, connecting separated city units and periphery. There are three types dealing with the activation of public spaces: first is about different highlines (Paris, NewYork, Rotterdam), second is about linear parks systems above infrastructure (Milano, Barcelona) and third are waterfronts (along canals, rivers and coastlines). Case study for this article demonstrates how these examples and world trends can be used to connect two cities in a logical way – beyond boundaries. The motto of graduate work was: the future of the city will be created on the periphery as the core is taken by the history. Project result is connection of the ancient city of Salona with the current centre of the city Split – the historic and world heritage Diocletian’s Palace. The connection is achieved through linear park.
