CITATION:

“…I’d say that there are concrete ways that a city’s materiality affects people collectively living in an urban environment, and that is because it impacts substantially in a city’s network structure, as to be inter-related in the social world of people, thereby encompassing what it means to be living in a city due to the fact that it can offer a greater sense of security in society….”

GLOSSARY NOTE:

Materiality:  is a sociological interpretation of materiality which can be of four things; that it is judged in terms of its inherent nature, that impacts or influences in its value, and by its use of that value regarding the affects in a social world, and the circumstances for the context in which materiality occurs in the social order.
