520 8  Summary: A radical shift is taking place in the way that 
       society is thinking about cities, a change from the 
       machine metaphors of the 20th century to mathematical 
       models of the processes of biological and natural systems.
       From this new perspective, cities are regarded not simply 
       as spatially extended material artefacts, but as complex 
       systems that are analogous to living organisms, exhibiting
       many of the same characteristics. There is an emerging 
       view that the design of the thousands of new cities needed
       for an expanding world population are to be founded on 
       intelligent and inhabited infrastructural systems or 'flow
       architectures' of urban metabolisms. The physical arrays 
       of the flow architecture of the city are intimately 
       connected to the networks of subsidiary systems that 
       collect and distribute energy, materials and information.
