As matter of fact, urban planning is an instru-ment of adjusting social interest, the target of whichis to maximize the public interest. Therefore, publicinterest should be the core of the value pursuit of theplanner. However, public interest can not be realizedthrough urban planning, it has to overcome self-inter-est influence from several aspects. The urban plan-ning knowledge should extend not only in the spacebut also the interdisciplinary involvement, especiallythe interest system which determines the mode ofland use and space distribution.
