Abstract

This paper describes the contribution of a project on housing careers to the U4IA research program. Based on a critical literature review which suggests that the relationship between the built environment and activity-travel patterns is relatively weak, it is argued that to better understand and qualify the relationship between the built environment and activity-travel patterns a life trajectory perspective may offer some advantages. Such a life trajectory perspective will primarily view housing demand in function of life cycle stages. This broader perspective allows a more detailed analysis of the influence of the built environment on dynamic activity-travel patterns.
