Residential Location as a Mode of Consumption: A Time-Geographic Perspective "The Project" Concept.
This paper employs the time-geographic perspective to analyze the choices made in residential relocation. According to the author, the motivation of residents to make their homes in an urban or suburban environment is determined chiefly by how geographically convenient the location is, and the amount of space that is needed by the resident. A model of determining factors and choices for location is presented. Central location is said to give the option of participating in urban activities, while suburban location is held to provide open space and a closer proximity to nature. These two factors are presented as major determinents in choice of residential location. (ML)
