Trevor Phillips and segregation

November 15, 2006

The Trevor Phillips stuff will work beautifully as justification for my Leverhulme application!

Second, yes he is being negative about high density without understanding or describing well what he means. The implication seems to be that high density leads to polarisation as opposed to mixing of communities. It’s intersting that the narrative of the article seems to be describing the sort of casual encounters – like the argument set out in Hillier and Hanson’s 1987 ‘The Architecture of Community’ (I’ve put a copy on BSCW if you’re interested).

To answer Ozlem’s comment, I think that the Trevor Phillips article is too imprecise for us to say it discusses scales and types of densities but it is certainly thought provoking!
