Land use modelling is an extension to transport modelling. In the book you can find an introduction, including the Lowry model in section 15.2. Furthermore, two papers are used for this topic:

The first two parts of section 15.2 give an introduction to land use modelling and the Lowry-model. The paper by Wegener and Fürst introduces the concept of Wegener’s circle as well as empirical evidence to support the mechanisms. The article by Zondag et al. gives a detailed description of the TIGRIS XL-model.
