This series of online lectures explores the physical and social form of cities


It covers theories about the form that settlements should take and attempts a distinction between descriptive and normative theory by examining examples of various theories of city form over time.


The lecture series consists of three sections:

  • The nature of city form theory
  • The modern city and its genesis in northern Europe in the late eighteenth–century
  • Current theory and practice, in particular on city form process, spatial and social structure, and form models


The graduate-level course was taught in spring 2013 on the MIT campus and includes 26 video lectures as well as further lecture notes (available here).
