Coherence in the Fractal City
This research is a second part of paper about the Fractal City. The research studies
the coherence phenomenon in this city, which is one of its characters.
The paper connects the urban coherence with the geometrical coherence through
the theory of complexity which says that the large scale complex which is assembled
from tightly interacting subunits on many different levels of scale is in a hierarchy going
down to the natural structure of material. Also through the connection with the rules of
geometrical coherence which are, the coupling, variety, boundaries, forces, organization,
hierarchy, interdependency and decomposition.
nie case study was a set of Arabic traditional cities, such as Old A1-Rusafah,Old
Aleppo, Old San 'a, Casbah of Algeria. The research hypothesis was that these cities have
the same rules of geometrical coherence.
The research used the descriptive analytical methods. Its findings was that these
cities are coherence in the treatment of urban fabric and elevations also they owned the
character of the geometrical coherence, and they are complex whole resulted from tightly
interacted subunits on different hierarchy.
