The City Codex of the city ecosystem is mainly inspired by different sciences, such as ecology, mathematics, social psychology and public administration. The codex relates to the governance of the city - as metaphor of the public domain of society - considered as an ecosystem, like that of a forest ecosystem.

By Jack Kruf

The codex contains guidance on essential components, cycli, factors, processes, relations and roles of the ecosystem. It has been developed by Governance Connect, a small design company.

The origin of the concept of the codex can actually be found in the forest. It is derived from the Latin caudex meaning “trunk of a tree”. The trunk is where two worlds meet in the binding principles of life, that of ‘above ground’ and that of ‘under ground’. The trunk is where all traffic from earth (upwards) and the air and the flora biomass (downwards) are combined within an ingenious transport system.

The City Codex is the set of 'building blocks', explained and described separately. The blocks can be used for diagnosis, dialogue and education.
