The urban body as a network configuration: autopoietic and intentional function

Abstract

Taking as a starting point the research hypothesis that the urban body can be described as a configuration of related elements on which qualitative and quantitative features are inscribed, the complexity of the relationships of the elements of the urban body is examined through their network configuration. With the consideration of the urban body as network configuration, two distinctive property groups arise. One group includes the properties resulting from the autopoietic network function and the internal self-regulatory capacity to reflect the relative position of an element in the whole system through quantified expressions (variables) of the elements' properties. The second group includes properties which arise from the intentional research-design process.The research initially focuses on the autopoietic processes, which directly derive from the network function and they highlight the internal dynamics of the urban body, while they produce the parts and different components of th ...
