This dissertation investigates the impacts of regime change and political events on the urban morphology of Tripoli. Such events resulted in the importation of western planners during the monarchy of Idris and socialist planners during Gaddafi’s “Jamahiriya”.

A new methodology utilising Geographic Information Systems (GIS) was adopted involving the computerisation of masterplans and maps and quantitative computational analysis, creating a narrative of planning and urban change.
