Housing and spatial orientation
- 14 Downloads
The paper focuses on location decisions of households as a problem of integrating them into a network of relations in space. Spatial activity patterns and social contacts are accounted for. The approaches developed reveal how residential location decisions shape land use and, on the other hand, how urban structure influences location decisions. The basic model dealing with a monocentric setting is extended to comprise more than one point of spatial orientation. Finally, it is applied to an urban structure characterized by subcentres. The results are in line with outcomes drawn from empirical works in the field of social area analysis.
