Going beyond previous investigations into urban land use and
travel, Petter Naess presents new research from Denmark on
residential location and travel to show how and why urban spatial
structures affect people's travel behaviour. In a comprehensive
case study of the Copenhagen metropolitan area, Naess combines
traditional quantitative travel surveys with qualitative interviews
in order to identify the more detailed mechanisms through which
urban structure affects travel behaviour. The case study findings
are compared with those from other Nordic countries and analyzed
and evaluated in the light of relevant theory and literature to
provide solid, valuable conclusions for planning sustainable urban
development. With a broader range of statistics than previous
studies and conclusions of international relevance, Urban Structure
Matters provides well-grounded conclusions for how spatial planning
of urban areas can be used to reduce car dependence and achieve a
more sustainable development of cities.
