In his 2016 Complex cities graduation Gijs de Haan explored the fragmentation of the global city of London. Current urban development practices are being compared to historic urban structures, such as the high streets, in order to explore the potential for a stronger integration between global and local. The outcomes of the research are used to propose a manifesto for the integrated city to serve as an alternative to the current exclusive method of urban development.
