09.02.2011, 14:00, Michael Weinstock @ HCI J 4 www.architectureofemergence.com Metabolism of the City Geometry has always been the principal mathematical means of describing the form of a city, persisting from the plans of ancient cities through to many contemporary studies. In recent decades there has been an increasing interest in the application to urban analysis of mathematical techniques that are more commonly used in biological studies of the metabolism of individual animals... Read More
