The city as cultural mechanism, social form, and as communication technology, resembles language, developing, storing, and transmitting culture. The city as a collective human orga­nism, maintains a niche, adapting to, and transforming the environment. The relations of cul­ture and communication technology can be framed in the human scale of the city and evalua­ted in terms of spatial and relational structurc, thc matcrialization and internalization of abstraction, and the synthcsis of the organic and machine esthetic - of form and function - quality of lifc. Temporally, enduring fonn and practice sustain change.
