Urbanship: In search for a comprehensive definition of urban environment

Abstract

The theoretical urban studies consider urban environment one of the central notions. The lack of clear definition of this notion prevents from successful evolution of theory and practice of urban development management. It is suggested to define urban environment as a system of information flows. The suggested approach allows consideration of town-planning, economic and social aspects of urban life from a unified position.
