PPJ Vol. XXIV No. 1 1992-02: The Urban Land Nexus Theory and the Spatial Structuring of Metropolitan Manila

The article presents the application of the urban land nexus theory in the analysis of urban development in the Philippines. Assuming that Western theories can only partly apprehend the urban development process in Third World countries, certain phenomena are expected to be left unexplained which may serve as material for crafting a model that shall better serve the realities of Third World urban development. To do this, the article first discusses the theory, then the second and third parts are on the application of the theory in analyzing the spatial structuring of Metropolitan Manila, while the fourth part is a critique of the theory and evaluation of its applicability in Metro Manila. The article concludes with a recommendation for the exploration of the need for a new model-theory designed for Third World urban development processes, as well as its formulation.
