dc.description.abstractUrban spatial structures are shaped by market forces interactingwith regulations, primary infrastructure investments and taxes. They areusually the unintended result of unforeseen consequences of policies andregulations that were designed without any particular spatial concerns.However, different urban spatial organizations perform differently. Forinstance, some urban shapes are unfavorable to the development of publictransport; others tend to increase the efficiency of public transport whilereducing residential floor consumption. Urban spatial structures are veryresilient and they evolve only very slowly. For this reason, a city's spatialstructure significantly reduces the range of available development options.en_US
