Nodes

Nodes are points within the city, strategically located, into which the individual enters (and which is often the main focal point to which she or he is traveling to or from). There are often junctions – a crossing or converging of paths. They often have a physical element such as a popular hangout for the individual or a plaza area. In many cases, the nodes are the centers of the district that they are in (Lynch, 1960).

The 'September-18 square', downtown Eindhoven.
'The Hogt', where the A2, A67 and N2 meet eachother.
