Abstract

This chapter explores the complex and varied nature of 'urban morphology' and how a traditional, largely qualitative approach could be extended by the range of current and potential quantitative techniques to form a 'new urban morphology'. The problems and advantages of innovative and interdisciplinary research are explored. The potential of such a 'new urban morphology' is in developing more robust and comprehensive approaches to understanding urban form, incorporating the multiple dimensions of scale, dynamics, production and consumption.
