Communivation (Innovation in communication Technology) over the last ten years has had an explosion that has brought an instant freedom to the town planning practice to create and “solve” the built environment disparities.
At the same time, the built environment structure is spreading faster with smaller and faster infrastructures such as high speed transport rails, expanded airports, high speed activity roads, and multifunctional telephones.
In other words there is a reorganization of the built environment.
The world celebrates this explosion of Communivation growth and change especially since it generates wealth and increases competition among 21st century capital economies.
