Evolution of Urban Patterns: Urban Morphology as an Open Reproducible Data Science

We have a new paper published in the Geographical Analysis on the opportunities current developments in geographic data science within the Python ecosystem offer to urban morphology. To sum up – there’s a lot to play with and if you’re interested in the quantification of urban form, there’s no better choice for you at the… Continue reading Evolution of Urban Patterns: Urban Morphology as an Open Reproducible Data Science

Talk at ISUF 2021: Classifying urban form at a national scale

I had a chance to present our ongoing work on the classification of the (built) environment in Great Britain during the International Seminar on Urban Form 2021, which was held virtually in Glasgow. I was presenting the classification of urban form, one component of Spatial Signatures we’re developing as part of the Urban Grammar AI… Continue reading Talk at ISUF 2021: Classifying urban form at a national scale

The Urban Atlas: Methodological Foundation of a Morphometric Taxonomy of Urban Form

The Urban Atlas: Methodological Foundation of a Morphometric Taxonomy of Urban Form is the title of my PhD Thesis defended in January 2021 at the University of Strathclyde. Thanks to Ombretta and Sergio for guiding me along the way! Abstract No two cities in the world are alike. Each urban environment is characterised by a… Continue reading The Urban Atlas: Methodological Foundation of a Morphometric Taxonomy of Urban Form

Morphological tessellation

Imagine you are trying to analyse a city, and you want primarily to understand its structure. You look at buildings, their dimensions and patterns they form, you look at a street network, and then you want to understand detailed patterns of density. This last point requires a specification of an aerial unit, and morphological tessellation is… Continue reading Morphological tessellation

Confused terminology in urban morphology

This is a short introduction of our recently published paper Measuring urban form: Overcoming terminological inconsistencies for a quantitative and comprehensive morphologic analysis of cities, which is essentially one of the background chapters of my PhD (hopefully finished later this year). When I started my work, which is focusing on measuring of urban form (or urban… Continue reading Confused terminology in urban morphology
