Network Cities Versus Central Place Cities: Building a Cosmo-Creative Constellation
In today’s global network economy, knowledge corridors link major knowledge-intensive nodes or hubs to form network cities. European examples include the Cambridge-London and Stockholm-Uppsala corridors as well as Randstad Holland. The Kansai region of Japan is another example of a network city. Analytical tools for the analysis of knowledge exchange processes between different centers are also under development (see, among others, Batten, Kobayashi and Andersson, 1989; Batten and Törnqvist, 1990; Kobayashi, Batten and Andersson, 1991).
