Pattern: Intersection of differently paced communications

-- / --

Part of a 5-fold Pattern Language.
Subsequently published in Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential (1986)

Pattern template

Wherever a network of lower intensity relationships is exposed to one of higher intensity, the intersection should be designed such as to protect the integrity of the latter.

Physical Where pedestrian pathways cross roads, the crossing should be protected by, for example, providing islands between the lanes and ensuring its recognition by drivers.

Broader Selective interchange axis; Compensating relationships in parallel; Interfacing vehicles of communication and networks of unmediated relationships.

Narrower Flexible interfaces; Hospitable transit points; Protected low intensity relationships; Bounded common small-scale interaction domains; Communication pathways enfolded by non-linearity; Limitation on number of occupiable temporary sites; Transit point location for sources of perspective nourishment.
