This study presents the development of the event and context approach as an approach to research in the person-environment relations discipline, and as a model for the planning discipline. This approach is meant to serve as a tool in devising planning approaches expressing a contextual consideration. Research work included a theoretical development, empirical research and a consideration of the planning implications of this approach. The event and context approach proposes a theoretical basis and research methodology predicated on two cornerstones: a definition distinguishing between event and context, and the principle of splitting. The event is a series of activities having in common the same grouping of players, and is marked by interdisciplinary characteristics. The context is a collection of events, and is marked by characteristics identical To this end, a theoretical and methodological development of the event and context approach was worked out, based on a to those of the event, with the exception of scope: the context is invariably wider than the event. The principle of splitting derives from this definition, and guides the methodology of splitting contexts into events, and events into sub-events, thus enabling to relate to events and contexts without having to resort to separation between various disciplines, but rather by using the event as an encompassing interdisciplinary research unit. This formed the basis for the empirical research conducted on the subject of daily events in various contexts of dwelling and employment. The study made use of households as an integrative analysis unit, and incorporated a new methodology for processing information and obtaining profiles of daily events within different contexts examined in the course of the research work.
