Reference to models and perceptions on the evolution to the development of city and urban planning from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the great modern cities. The effects of the industrial revolution in European urban areas, and pre-planning theories and utopian ideals models' creation of new towns (over the utopia of the 19th century το the technological realism of the 20th to the operating rationalism, the growth in height, the integration of outdoor green space in cities, the continued suburban growth in America and discontinuous urban development of cities in Europe). The total redevelopment planning assistance and renewal within large cities and the protection, restoration and sustainable development of traditional villages and historical centers. Analysis of the concept and goals of development and planning at local, regional, national and international level. Theories of space location and location of economic activities, development poles and regional disparities, and the organization and location of land uses in urban and regional scale.
