Planning Cyber-Cities? Integrating Telecommunications - janeiro de 1999

planning cyber-cities integrating telecommunicationThis paper attempts to how urban planning strategies can creatively address the complex interlinkages between telecommunications, urban forms and transportation. It has three parts. In the first, we set the context for local, planned intervention on IT and telecommunications by exploring the broad relationships between the development and spread of new information technologies, and the changing form and development of cities, and systems of physical mobility and location... In part two we go on to review a broad, international range of emerging urban planning and policy initiatives which are trying to shape the articulation between urban built forms and electronic interactions... Finally, we conclude by assessing the significance of these policies and suggest ways for creatively integrating telecommunications into urban policy and planning practices and strategies.
