Crisis City: Building Networks in the Knowledge Economy
city, world economies
Through harnessing these elements and manifesting their powers at the urban scale, design can spark new economic initiatives leading to greater entrepreneurial activity. With this method, economically declining cities have an opportunity to recreate themselves through urban design which generates street vitality, social interaction, and optimizes talent through distributed spatial networking. Using the driving principals of amenity creation and the innovating powers of agglomeration economies, struggling cities have a chance to rebound by incubating new businesses and launching the next generation companies in life sciences, renewable energy and nanotechnology.
