Abstract:The third paper explores the relationship between urban form and ICT in an intrametropolitan context. In spite of the expected centrifugal (i.e., decentralization) forces of ICT on urban form, the findings of the regression analyses suggest that ICT function as a centripetal force, and provide evidence of the interdependence between ICT and urban form. The findings also point out that geographic location still matters for ICT, despite the "death of geography" premise. Therefore, this dissertation has sought to extend the knowledge base on the relationship between ICT, urban environments, and urban planning.
