Abstract: The concept of Nested Networks is proposed to address the interplay between different levels of scale in the analysis of urban form. Focusing on processes of tissue formation, the internal configurations of buildings or building compounds are considered as local, spatial networks nested within a global host network of urban space. Two case studies within the historical core of Zurich investigate how such configurations of local, spatial networks have been affected by shifts in centrality within the superordinate host network, and how the reshuffling of local configurations has in turn allowed adaptations of the superordinate network. The proposed approach draws on a combination of Process typology and Space Syntax. In view of the results, the potential of a more thorough cross-fertilization of these two strands of urban morphology is discussed.
