Pattern: Integrative infrastructure

Part of a 5-fold Pattern Language.

Pattern template

The best form of infrastructure is continuous with the overlying framework whose pattern of inter-level connections is then embedded in the context in a manner entirely integral with it.

Physical The best foundations are like those of a tree where the entire structure of the tree simply continues below ground level, creating a system entirely integral with the ground so as to resist tension and horizontal shear as well as compression.

Broader Grounded structures; Distribution of secondary inter-level connections; Primary inter-level connections at transitions in boundary orientation; Primary inter-level connections at transitions in boundary orientation; Structural development designed to counteract deficiencies in pattern harmony.

Narrower Inter-level connections; Initial level formation; Level generation of minimum tension.
