The structure of a place can play a large role in its success. Inner city New Farm in Brisbane benefits from central centres, alternative routes of movement, density, and a well located park.
Structure - organise places so their parts relate well to each other. This is particularly relevant to 'greenfield' sites as well as redevelopment or renewal of existing areas. It refers to the way an urban area is physically put together including its:
- shapes of land parcels
- routes of movement
- street patterns and
- networks of public spaces.
A city is more than the sum of these parts; connections between the parts make a coherent, functioning whole. A good structure allows for change while the structure itself remains stable.
