The analogy between the city and the human body goes back to Leonardo. The heart of the city, said Victor Gruen, pumps its people as flows of traffic to keep it energized as an exchange mechanism. Great visualization of the pulsing of the city from the SubMap Group in Budapest. Look at Lisbon’s blood vessels too.
