Generating projects for urban research

B Harris

Received 6 October 1969

Abstract. This paper provides an overview of the author's derivation of the most productive areas for urban research. The first general topic to be considered is the understanding of the urban process, together with the role of that understanding in planning; the second general topic is the problem of generating a limited number of alternative policies which may be considered to be in some sense optimal—in part, the problem of urban design. In each case, the nature of the problems associated with the topic is explored, and a number of suggestions are made for fruitful directions for research.
