Ways in which the demand for energy and other basic resources can be lessened by more appropriate urban design are developing as a continuing theme of IIASA's Project on the Management of Urban and Regional Systems. It is a theme which cross-cuts and integrates many of the other concerns of the Institute, and from comments received from national member organizations, it is of considerable interest to persons charged with the formulation and implementation of urban plans.

As the first formal fruit of our developing cooperation with other research groups sharing these interests, we are pleased indeed to present this summary and synthesis of work on the relation between urban land use and environmental quality carried out by a team under the direction of Professor Brian J.L. Berry at the University of Chicago. Professor Berry, who is both Chairman of the Geography Department and Director of the Center for Urban Studies at Chicago, also finds time to serve as a member of the International Advisory Committee on IIASA's urban work.
