Six fundamental aspects of urban form

The first week of October 2016 I was kindly invited to attend an exciting workshop at the Arizona State University. The aim was to discuss land use land cover change, from a spatially explicit point of view, looking towards urban form. There were no presentations, only four intensive working days, excellent food and enlightening discussions.

As a result of that meeting, we produce a conceptual paper, to propose a systematisation of six relevant aspects defining urban form. It was a hard one year work until getting the final text ready for submission. The article was recently published in Landscape and Urban Planning. I had my best memories of that meeting. I hope we will have the chance to meet up again soon!
