Part of a 5-fold Pattern Language.

Pattern template

In order to prevent high intensity relationships from acquiring disproportionate significance, low intensity relationships should be given a prominent position, especially where they have a common boundary with those of high intensity.

Physical Pedestrian sidewalks should be raised 0.5 metres above the level of parallel roads carrying fast-moving traffic, with some form of railing to mark the edge, or else pedestrians feel overwhelmed by the vehicles.

Broader Compensating relationships in parallel; Differentiation by relationship density; Intersection of differently paced communications; Interfacing vehicles of communication and networks of unmediated relationships.

Narrower Ambiguous boundaries; Partially contained interfaces; Hospitability of communication pathways; Integrating points of perspective into common domains; Arrangement of structures ot engender fruitful interfaces; Transit point location for sources of perspective nourishment.
