The city cyberspace: New dimensions of urbanity, as contrast to the information highway or its continuation
“With the construction of the tunnel connecting Europe with Great Britain, the city of Lille has become closer to the centre of London, than have London’s own outskirts. This is a new way of mobility of the urban society ...” The system of different speeds already exists in the city(space and is modifying our perception, as well as use of space. These speeds/forces have different characteristics and directions. They are adjusted through individual layers which co-jointly represent “chaos”, a complexity of physical structures, which is adjusted by changing interactions between consumers. The structure is no longer stationary. It is constantly in motion. The central point of space is man/individual. The interplay of motion, speed and purpose strengthens dispersion, which is the answer to negative forces of accumulation, concentration, closure and immovability of space, to the changing social, economic and political conditions.
