Cécile Tannier presents the Fractal model and its impact on how urban forms and spatial organisation are approached in urban studies and planning. Reflecting critically on scale invariance and optimality, she shows how and why fractal models enable us to better understand how space is organised through scales and how urban planning can modify this spatial organisation in a fractal manner, accounting for the effects of distance and scale dependence. See the video on the YouTube channel:...

When new lifestyles disrupt daily mobility in England   By exploring data relating to England from the UK National Travel Survey between 2002 and 2017, this research led by Benjamin Motte-Baumvol was able to refine the analysis of daily mobility usually carried out in France (where surveys are based on one “typical day”) by considering the variability of travel over a whole week, which reflects our increasingly fragmented lives more authentically. Thanks to new “remote” practices...
