Abstract: Chinese geographers believe that the synthetic studies on man-land relationship should be strengthened.However, no research has been done yet in China on technical design in terms of man-land relationship.Therefore, TRIZ has been introduced to deal with issues related with technological system, technique contradictions, innovation level and ideal situation.The theoretical basis of TRIZ for overcoming the system contradictions is based on eight laws of technical system evolution.The methods are mainly used as analysis tools and repository.The analysis tools include contradiction matrix, substance-field model, standard solution, ARIZ and demand function analysis.The repository includes 40 innovation theories, contradiction solving principles, 76standard solutions and an effect database.The procedure of TRIZ includes problem identification, tool and method selection and solving programme evaluation.This study, with Qingshan District of Wuhan as a case, probes into the approach, the theory, the method and the powerful function of TRIZ in solving contradictions of areal man-land relationship, and establishes a logic paradigm as well.The conclusion shows that TRIZ, applicable to both technology field and non-technical field, offers a new vision, new theory and new method for studying man-land relationship in the future.

Key words: TRIZ, man-land relationships, case study, new theory, new method
