Distribution of amenities depending on the development of the cities

Trade and services are moving around the city, looking for new areas and changing their character. The research follows the relationship between the character of services and their distribution in the city's developmental phases. This research presents a new approach to the issue of distribution of amenities in the urban structure. The aim of the research is to find and describe the relationships between the stratification of cities in terms of their historical development, the change of the street hierarchy and the current deployment of the active parterre in public space. Using a time-layered model combining urban morphology, configuration of street network (Space syntax) and a service location database, research shows the importance of historical urban development in understanding the phenomenon of distribution of amenities.
