Date of Defense 1999-10-14 Availability unrestricted AbstractAs transportation systems, telecommunications, and methods of working and living evolve, it becomes clear that a centralized urban area is no longer necessary; a web of interconnected centers is the more likely result.
This dissolution of urban density is occuring at a variety of scales, from the largest metro areas to smaller towns. Major "edge cities" have tended to develop at crossroads where radiating urban avenues intersect with concentric beltways. In our towns, smaller-scale edge cities occur at expressway exits outside the town limits, or where the business route into town separates from the bypass around it.
"City/edge" is an architectural reconsideration of the edge city.
