Urban Complexity and Planning : Theories and Computer Simulations.

Author: Shih-Kung Lai; Haoying Han
Publisher: Farnham : Ashgate Publishing Ltd, 2014.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Based on the emergent paradigm of complexity, the book provides an innovative set of arguments about how we can gain a better understanding of how cities emerge and function through computer simulations, and how plans affect the evolution of complex urban systems in a way distinct from what we used to think they should. Empirical case studies focus on the development of a compact urban hierarchy in Taiwan, China,  Read more...
