Subject: Principle of Town Planning and
Architecture
INVERTIS UNIVERSITY, BAREILLY
 A town is classified into various categories
according to the different stages of
development.
 Sir Patrick Geddes has given three such
as primary, secondary and tertiary.
 The primary town is one which produces
human necessities such as agricultural
village.
 The secondary town is one which
functions as entry of exchange such as
marketing town.
 The tertiary town is one which provides
residential, educational and recreational facilities.
 In reality, a town is a mixture of all the above
categories.
#Lewis Mumford has given six categories which
are as follows:
Eopolis,
Polis,
Metropolis(Mother city),
Megapolis,
Tyrannopolis and
Necropolis
1. Eopolis
Here, town grows as one entire unit.
Its economy is based on agriculture.
2. Polis
Here town grows into a small urban unit of self
contained community.
It has a commerce and industry, etc.
3. Metropolis(Mother city)
Here, the city grows to its full stature, with high
population density and large potentialities, with all
facilities like water supply, drainage, electricity,
transport, commerce and industries etc.
(London, Bombay and Calcutta,etc)
4. Megalopolis
It is an over grown city into a mess due to growing
expansion of industries, high rise buildings, multi track
roads, mass housing, mass transportation.
In its overgrown nature, lie the germs of its decay which
begin to creep in all the portion of the city.
5. Tyrannopolis
The city shows further decay in all the fields like trade,
commerce, military power etc.
6. Necropolis
The city in the worst stage and unfit for dwelling.
So, it is the city of dead where one finds disease, famine,
economic breakdown, etc.
(Persepolis, Babylon etc)
