Mathematical models are being applied extensively in urban and regional planning. A variety of applications ranging from economic forecasting to traffic assignment for highway networks are in evidence. However, the primary function in the planning process, plan design, has received only scant attention. The critical nature of the plan design function in its focal role in the urban planning sequence indicates the need for a mathematical model for urban design. The requirements of an urban plan design model are delineated. A conceptual framework for an urban design model that seems to comply with these requirements is discussed.
