It has been found particularly useful for students and those new to the subject - but they (and all other users) should be aware of its limitations!
For the example of Koblenz in this period, see von der Dollen (1978, 1990)."A peripheral addition to the built-up area of a town generally consisting of a non-traditional plan- unit and forming a component of either a residential integument or a fringe belt" (Conzen, 1969, p. Control over details such as the external appearance of new building by the local planning authority (Punter, 1986b; 1987).
Punter offers a working definition of the term as "that aspect of the regulation of development that seeks to control the physical attributes and uses of new buildings, and the spaces between them, so as to ensure a rewarding sensuous experience for the public who use the environment thus created (Punter, 1990, p. In Britain, central government's philosophy on aesthetic control has been summarised as "(a) the design of a building is synonymous with its external appearance; (b) the external appearance of a building can be considered separately from other aspects of a building; (c) any judgement of the external appearance of a building is essentially an aesthetic judgement; (d) aesthetic judgement is subjective; and (e) architectural training confers special status in the exercise of aesthetic judgement" (Bacon, 1980, pp. Recent Department of the Environment guidance is that local planning authorities should not exert such control, except in special circumstances such as in conservation areas (Department of the Environment, 1985; Punter, 1986a).
SEE: planning application This term is found in planning application and building regulation files, designating the representative of the initiator who liaises with the local authority.
Some morphological studies (eg Callis, 1986) use it in a general sense.
At that time, we felt that the nature of research in urban morphology was developing rapidly, as were contacts with like-minded scholars in several countries. It was becoming evident that a lack of knowledge of the terminology used in different countries was an increasing obstacle to understanding what was being published. Everyone seemed to be discussing something different and there was very little common ground or methodological base, quite apart from language problems. Conzen's own glossary in the revised second edition of his Alnwick study (1969), extending it with terms found in other publications and theses.
As Ivor Samuels wrote in 1990, 'It is one of the attractions of the nexus of concepts, ideas and approaches that occupy the field of urban morphology that they are capable of being appropriated for use by different professions in different contexts who seek to use them for their own purposes. This, however, is one of the strengths of morphology. We felt it necessary, rather as the Oxford English Dictionary does, to give precise citations and indeed quotations from works which have used particular terms in particular ways, to establish context and provenance for usage.
It is open to approach by various disciplines with their own methods and any attempts to restrict or strait-jacket the discourse could stifle it' (pp. Hence we compiled a basic glossary of technical terms common principally in English-language studies. With the growth of ISUF as an international organisation from 1994, and the identification of a series of national 'schools' (Moudon, 1997), comes the opportunity to develop and broaden this Glossary.However, that is still very much work-in-progress, and meantime the 1990 Glossary has been placed on this website (with the permission of the Royal Geographical Society/Institute of British Geographers). The following listing includes the names (and alternate names) of all the firms we've researched and interviewed in the past 17 years and are in our internal data base. Researching the directory of Canadian Recruiters for yearly publication we've compiled information on more than 16,000 Canadian employment firms, organizations and locations!Note that this listing includes recruiting firms and every other type of employment related consultant and organization.This glossary (listed below) was compiled by Peter Larkham and Andrew Jones in the late 1980s, first as an internal discussion paper at the the University of Birmingham, and subsequently published as a Research Monograph by the Historical Geography Research Group of the Institute of British Geographers (ISBN 1 870074 08 4).
