ISUF’s aim is the international and interdisciplinary sharing of ideas, methods and findings concerned with urban form. Beginning in 1994 with the coming together of some 20 architects, geographers, planners and historians, representing four different language areas, it now has some 600 individual and institutional members from about 50 countries.
The activities of ISUF are governed by its Council, composed of Officers and elected members, which meets once a year to review the association’s business.
The general activities of the association are coordinated by its Executive Committee, constituted by the President, Secretary-General, Treasurer, ‘Urban Morphology’ Editor and Coordinator of the Regional Networks.
The publication of the association’s journal is in the hands of an Editor, two Associate Editors, two Assistant Editors, an Editorial Assistant and an Editorial Board. Special projects are coordinated by the chairs and secretaries of various Commissions and Working Parties. All administrative positions in the organization are honorary and unpaid.
