Governing Features

Complex adaptive systems are subject to governing features that remain consistent - regardless of the system.

This website's content is organized in relation to six governing features of complex systems:

bottom up agents;  adaptive processes;  information flows;  non-linearity;  nested scales; and,  emergence;

    Tactical interventions are light, quick and cheap - but if deployed using a complexity lens, could they be a generative learning tool that helps make our cities more fit?

    Tactical Urbanism is a branch of urban thinking that tries to understand the benefits of grassroots, bottom-up initiatives in creating meaningful urban space. While not associating itself directly with complexity theory, many of the tools it employs -particularly its way of 'learning by doing' ties in with adaptive and emergent concepts from complexity theory. {{tactical-urbanism}}
