Moving Circulation page 1 (page 2)

A modern city is a moving city. Society becomes united not by built form, but by the circulation around imposed forms. The frenzied pace of everyday life creates communities in motion. One building will not sufficiently unite the city, as our inherent motion prohibits us from using a singular communal place. EveryVille can thus be united by a different kind of space; not one that is stationary, but one that moves with the residents. Transit will be re-routed from the existing grade-level rectilinear grid to a raised radial pattern of roads that move based on time. The center of the arrangement, or organizing spoke, is created at the intersection of Street X and Avenue Z, where the city began. Immediately surrounding this intersection are the various schools, emphasizing that the communal center of the city is intrinsically linked to education and progress. The left half of the radial city is residential space, with commercial and business pursuits within the right hemisphere.
