In his thesis, Temperley analyzes the spacial organization of the city, bringing together the study of urban morphology and the study of segregation by zooming on street patterns in Victorian England. Temperley considers the descriptive way in which cities were structured, as well as more recent quantitative insights on segregation, which the examine statistical dimensions of city structures. He then weaves these two strands together, using contemporary Ordnance Survey maps that reflect how segregation and morphology impact each other, share a relationship, and offer insight into one another.
