Abstract [en]

The cities are urban mosaics. The urban life today is a sequence of temporally inhabited and interconnected spaces, movable or fixed. The connections between spaces inspire or inhibit contacts and interactions between people. They bend times and continuously shape and reshape spaces, sociabilities and situations. The neighborhoods are agglomerations of individuals and buildings, but they are also perplexed individuals with own life, countenance and history. They are complex social and physical phenomena, products of unique social and technological conditions of its age, entangling architectural styles and transport modes. Much research has been done about urban mosaics of neighborhoods in urban morphology. How can we apply the conceptualizations in urban morphology to refine the research approach and methodology on the interaction between transportation and cities? Can we use the historical regularities in physical form and social perceptions on neighborhoods to enrich the aggregated approach in transportation research?
