Abstract

This research was carried out on the state of degradation of the historic core of Annaba city, Algeria. This degradation is caused by multiple factors, the most important of which is the absence of shared responsibility of public actors. The number of collapses multiplied which became a source for the creation of large office buildings with modernist tendencies, but without any architectural identity. The real estate park in downtown Annaba brings together urban entities according to various principles and logics of composition, structuring the urban image of the city of Annaba. The objective of this study is to build a complete catalogue summarizing the structures and fundamental characteristics of old buildings. Initially, this study defines all the notions linked to urban morphology and the typologies of housing. Secondly, an architectural study will be carried out on the “income house”, which represents the basic unit for the development of this historic nucleus. The typological analysis was applied to 44 buildings from the 19th and early 20th centuries located on the boulevard named “Revolution Square” in order to identify a set of common and specific criteria for the classification of “house income”.
