Smart Urban Planning: Designing Urban Land Use from Urban Time Use

In the context of the Smart City Initiative, the authors present in this paper a pioneering Smart Urban Planning Method to reformulate the planning values used for designing and establishing the distribution and use of urban land. The new planning values for urban design are obtained from an innovative conversion rule which transforms the daily distribution of urban time use into quantities of urban land use. The opinions of citizens concerning how to cover their urban needs and associated time use allocation are used to establish equivalence results, and recalibrate and improve current urban land use. In addition, the authors' method stimulates and inspires public participation in the urban planning approval process, changing citizens from passive valuators to active partners and designers.
