ABSTRACT
Urban functional zoning is performed for different goals and in different ways. At present, there is a conflict between the monofunctional and polyfunctional types of zoning, their ratio in general plans and the influence of the urban metabolic process on functional zoning. An approach has been put forward, stating that urban master plans should definitely include polyfunctional zones in which the ratio of functional priority is being constantly influenced by the continuous process of urban metabolism. The aim of this study was to optimize the functional zoning of Kaunas city by identifying new polyfunctional zones on the basis of the Kaunas city master plan. A new structure of the polyfunctional zones has been proposed. The ratio of monofunctional and polyfunctional territories in Kaunas city and the influence of metabolism on functional zoning have been described.
