Shpuza; Urban Shapes and Urban Grids: A Comparative Study of Adriatic and Ionian Coastal Cities
according to their data points: First, the theoretical grid t1, where a few lines cross through groups of dense grids, is located in the top right quadrant; Second, the comet-like theoretical grid t2, which is composed of dense cores and a small and sparser tail extension, are located in the zone of negative Connectivity Skewness below the x- axis. Therefore, in addition to the fact that both office layouts and urban grids consist of L-shapes which roughly overlap, they occupy a narrow and distinct place in the field of possible combinations of Connectivity and Connectivity Skewness. This illustrates the second fundamental feature of linear representations of the built environment.
(a) Typology of urban grids and fifty linear maps compared according to connectivity, (b) the overlapping of urban grid typology with office layout typology, (c, d, e, f) vectors of change of Integration and Mean Depth across three types of urban grids and three types of office layouts
