Urban land use structure is always one of research cores both in urban plan and urban geography.Reasonable land use structure has been one of the ways to ptomote urban function and land use benefits. This paper reviews the research results of urban land use structure according to urban land use evolution feature, driving mechanism of urban land use evolution, urban land use structure optimization and urban land use structure dynamic simulation. The conclusions show the present reasearch has its own limits in methods and contents. In the future, following works should be conducted. (1) From the view of rational arrangement of urban functional structure, the relations between urban functional structure and urban land use structure should be studied and the general rule of urban land use structure evolution in different industrial phases should be explored; (2) Static models should be changed to dynamic-quantitative models, and a supporting system for decision-making should be established; (3) A theoretical framework for regulating urban land use types and land use structures should be established to provide a theoretical support for urban planning and land use spatial distribution optimization.

Key words: prospects, research progress, urban land use structure
