ABSTRACT

During the twentieth century, the research on the urban internal structure has been active with the phenomena of the rapid urbanization and metropolitan subdivision. The classical models for the urban internal structure such as Burgess’ Concentric zone model, Hoyt’s Sector model provided the explanation framework for urban internal structure efficiently. However, some research mainly focused on the morphological aspect of urban spatial structure, which made the essential understanding of urban spatial structure impossible. For this reason, the purpose of this paper is to stress the importance of the theoretical review framework based on the concepts and processes, in order to understand urban spatial structures correctly. The concepts and processes for urban internal structures are closely related to the spatial form, and through this framework, Burgess and Hoyt models were reviewed.
