The purpose of the article is to critically discuss the methodology for measuring „urban scenes” which has been proposed by contemporary Chicago School. The author presents the assumptions and conceptual-analytical framework of scene theory, and then discusses the consecutive steps of the research strategy developed by this theory. The author refers to her research experience in using the scene approach and points to challenges and problems in the application of the scene theory, as well as proposes some strategies of overcoming them.
