  • The effet of land-use controls on the spatial size of U.S. urbanized areas
  • Built up area ; Housing cost ; Land use ; Territorial control ; Town ; United States of America ; Urban area ; Urban growth ; Zoning
  • On a sample of US urbanized areas in 2000, the AA. test theoretical hypotheses of the effect of land-use controls on the spatial size of urban areas. Minimum lot-size zoning and maximum FAR restrictions expand the urban area, while maximum lot-size
  • zoning, urban growth boundaries, maximum square footage limits, maximum building permit restrictions, minimum person per room controls, and impact fees contract the urban area.

  • This interdisciplinary terrain is explored by using the example of an urban cemetery in North London as a starting point. Queer ecology may enrich our understanding of both urban materiality and the role of metaphors in urban theory. This idea

  • A historical review and assessment of urban heat island research in Singapore
  • Climatic change ; Heat island ; Research ; Seasonal variation ; Singapore ; Space time ; Urban area ; Urban climate ; Urbanization
  • This historical review of 20 studies since the 1960s examines the influence of urban development on the thermal environment in Singapore. Past observations are critically assessed with regard to experimental controls and station metadata. Changes
  • in urban heat island intensity and spatial coverage can be traced temporally. Rapid urban expansion is clearly reflected in spatially and temporally changing air and surface temperature patterns.

  • Starting from the recognition of the fact that cities are no longer the ones to wich our institutional system refers, the essay offers an overview of the recent Italian urban history, investigating how cities changed over time and how geograhical
  • researches described and interpreted this phenomenon in different geographical contexts. Quoting from a recent report issued by the Italian council for social Sciences, the A. analyzes the current horizontal and vertical process of deconstruction of the urban
  • systems, emphasizing the need for a national urban policy. The “Urban Agenda” launched by the Italian Government should now answer to such a need. - (NF)

  • The Urban West and the Rural Rest: Framing in Dutch Regional Planning in the 1950s
  • Agriculture ; Core-periphery ; Historical geography ; Industry ; Netherlands (The) ; Regional planning ; Regional planning authority ; Rural area ; Twentieth Century ; Urban area ; Urban-rural dichotomy ; northern Netherlands ; peri-urban landscape
  • This paper draws on the case of Dutch regional planning in the 1950s to investigate how ‘urban space’ and ‘rural space’ have traditionally been perceived as opposing concepts. During this decade, politicians, planners and policy-makers constructed
  • an image of an overdeveloped, urban, industrial centre on the one hand, and an underdeveloped, rural, agricultural periphery on the other. Rooted in a debate about the ‘harmonious’ development of the Netherlands, this image made a substantial contribution
  • to the schematic understanding of urban and rural space. Examining this frame as an historical construct helps to reveal the anachronistic character of many of the urban-rural differentiations that are made today.

  • Hierarchy and concentration in the American urban system of technological advance
  • Agglomeration ; Innovation ; Knowledge economy ; Patent ; Rank-size distribution ; Spatial concentration ; Technological innovation ; United States of America ; Urban hierarchy
  • The paper investigates aspects of the urban hierarchy and concentration of patent sub-categories in US metropolitan areas by estimating Zipf, Gini and Moran's I coefficients. Results do not support a power law depiction of the location
  • of disaggregate patenting in the entire metropolitan system. Technologies are cross-classified, which reveals aspect of variety in locational patterns and offers clues into systems of knowledge exchange in urban-based technological advance.
