Infrastructure Patterns VII

2019

This situation of planetary urbanisation means, paradoxically, that even spaces that lie well beyond the traditional city cores and suburban peripheries—from transoceanic shipping lanes, transcontinental highway and railway networks, and worldwide communications infrastructures to alpine and coastal tourist enclaves, “nature” parks, offshore financial centres, agro-industrial catchment zones and erstwhile “natural” spaces such as the world’s oceans, deserts, jungles, mountain ranges, tundra, and atmosphere—have become integral parts of the worldwide urban fabric.

[…] As early as four decades ago, Henri Lefebvre put forward the radical hypothesis of the complete urbanisation of society, demanding a radical shift in analysis from urban form to the urbanisation process.
