    Any large metropolitan city will contain a core of residential, industrial and service functions. The spatial location of these functions -

    the structure of the city - will be determined by the decisions both of those who perform and those who use these functions. These

    decisions will be based on two key mechanisms, the market and the plan, which will operate, in different proportions, in every city’s

    development. This Factsheet will address to what extent the relative dominance of the plan in Eastern Europe and the market in Western

    Europe has affected the structure of urban areas in these two regions.
