Networked Cities/ Networked Infrastructure

“A critical focus on networked infrastructure — transportation, telecommunications, energy, water, and streets — offers up a powerful and dynamic way of seeing contemporary cities and urban regions (see Dupuy, 1991). When our analytical focus centres on how the wires, ducts, tunnels, conduits, streets, highways and technical networks that interlace and infuse cities are constructed and used, modern urbanism emerges as an extraordinarily complex and dynamic socio- technical process”- (Graham and Marvin, Splintering Urbanism, p.11).
