Cities and scaling

February 23, 2015

Ancient cities scale in the same way as modern ones. My own suspicion is that human interaction in two-dimensional space determine the logic of this. Because of sky scrapers, we may think of modern cities as three-dimensional. But they really aren’t. Travel occurs only at a couple of levels. I wonder if anyone has studied the scaling differences between cities that heavily depend on a subway system to relieve its surface streets, like New York, and cities more dependent on one level of transport.

Rabbits also fit themselves into urban architecture.
