Portland Urban Form

What does "urban form" mean?
Urban form refers to the spatial imprint of an urban transport system as well as the adjacent physical infrastructures. Jointly, they confer a level of spatial arrangement to cities. This picture shows just one view (out of many) of the urban form in Portland.

Great shot. Portland has an excellent reputation as a city for LEED structures, green industries and public transportation. You chose a good spot.

This is such a great picture! I love the view. Portland seems like such a cool place to visit (which I will be soon!)
