Waves

Is the wave barrier free?

We discussed making a city barrier free.  Possibly a city designed for all should not be to a grid pattern, but follow natural waves and cell shapes?

Would that be truly ecological and beautiful and accessible?

What is the mathematics of these shapes?  Are they more efficient?

  1. Sounds like the mathematics that you might want to look at are those that are relevant to Chaos Theory. Put rather crudely, the theory is that there is not a sharp boundary between stable and unstable systems (as a long shot the boundary at the edge of the city). The relevance is the fact that this ‘fuzzy’ boundary is populated by beautiful mathematically defined patterns (fractal geometrical shapes). Well that perhaps sounds a bit airy fairy but might just be what you are thinking of?
