In recent decades, the world has witnessed major economic, social, technical and environmental changes that have profoundly affected urban patterns, human activities, and lifestyles. Globalization, knowledge-based economy, network society, Climate change, information and communication technology, transportation technologies, rapid urbanization and the growing number of cities have become major issues for researchers, planners, policymakers and managers. Thus, in the field of urban studies, knowledge-based cities have been proposed to answer these challenges. A Knowledge-based city is an approach whose goals are Sustainable urban development and economic improvement. Knowledge-based cities can find effective solutions to contemporary problems by using Knowledge. In addition, the knowledge-based approach will influence future planning theories. Therefore, Theories that have influenced the concept of knowledge-based urban development are discussed firstly. Then characteristics of knowledge-based urban development are presented and finally, traces of the knowledge-based approach in planning theories are examined. The results show that rational and comprehensive planning was influenced by capitalist economics. However, participatory planning is influenced by knowledge-based economics. In this progress, the role of planners has shifted from wise men to facilitators. Therefore, it is possible to move towards a knowledge-based planning theory in the future.
