title Land Use Location and Urban Topology - Exploring this relationships' relevance and an approach methodology
source Van Leeuwen, J.P. and H.J.P. Timmermans (eds.) 2006, Progress in Design & Decision Support Systems in Architecture and Urban Planning, Eindhoven: Eindhoven University of Technology, ISBN-10: 90-386-1756-9, ISBN-13: 978-90-386-1756-5, p. 85-100
summary This work's first aim is to analyse the relationship between urban axes' topological properties and urban land use location. The second aim is to do it in a straightforward reliable way. A bottom-top methodology is proposed and explored. It is commonly accepted that land use searches within the city for a convenient location, concerning their business. Location is influenced by several factors. These factors and their relative importance differ among land uses. Accessibility is usually recognised as an important factor. This work analyses some land uses in the city of Lisbon in relation to the location parameter: topological accessibility. The exploratory work made clearer it worth studying topology's role in the location of urban land use. Although short on land use types, its wide spectrum in relation to service level confirms both urban topology as an important location parameter and the proposed method as promising.
