THE PROCESS MATRIX

Once goals and interventions have been enumerated, the relationship between them can be quantified. If, for example, an increasingly simple order of the form leads to a corresponding increase in the link capacity of the street and in the overt structure of the context, then an increase in the variety of the form may result in a decrease in both the link capacity of the street and the apparent structure of the context. The Process Matrix is used to develop the actual normative relationships for a particular street type; that is, the relationship between the normative goal intervention and a particular street type.
