The physical arrays of the flow architecture of the city are intimately connected to the networks of subsidiary systems that collect and distribute energy, materials and information. They animate the city, and should therefore be intimately coupled to the spatial and cultural patterns of life in the city, to the public spaces through which people flow, and should unite rather than divide urban morphological and ecological : Michael Weinstock.

In The New Science of Cities, Michael Batty suggests that to understand cities we must view them not simply as places in space but as systems of networks and flows. To understand space, he argues, we must understand flows, and to understand flows, we must understand networks―the relations between objects that compose the system of the by: Drawing on ideas from mathematics, computer science, and philosophy, this book addresses the definition and place of information in society.

The authors, observing that information flow is possible only within a connected distribution system, provide a mathematically rigorous, philosophically sound foundation for a science of by: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Pred, Allan, Systems of cities and information flows.

Typically, cities and nature are perceived as geographic opposites, cities being manufactured social creations, and nature being outside of human construction. Through a historical geography of water in the modern city, Kaika shows that this is not the case.

Rather, nature and the modern city are fully intertwined, with cities integrating nature at every level of activity.
