Abstract
With the accelerated advent of the mobile internet era, village-in-flows are beginning to emerge. In these new villages, virtual agglomeration caused by the space of flows creates more economic development and employment opportunities without necessarily leading to a significant increase in the density and intensity of the built-up areas. The E-Garden City constituted by the village-in-flows and the relatively low-density town-in-flows possesses a strong endogenous power, and can connect the industrial division system in a wider range, thus providing fuller employment and a more livable living environment.
隨著移動互聯網時代的加速到來,流鄉村開始不斷湧現。在這些新鄉村,流空間所引致的虛擬集聚在創造更多經濟發展機會與就業崗位的同時,並不必然引致實體建成空間開發密度與強度的大幅提升。流鄉村與相對分散的流城鎮所構成的新興田園城市,具有強勁的內生動力,能夠連結更大範圍的產業分工體系,從而提供更為充分的就業和更宜居的生活環境。
