Does 'concentric circular layout' have any meaning in English? It's for the description of a city. It relates to the city plan. The concept is that the city has been built and has developed following this...pattern? layout? plan? The idea is that the various areas of the city are inside concentric rings, with the central business district being located inside the inner ring and the residential areas on the outer rim. English is not my mother tongue and I'm having problems translating this. It's for a sci-fi project I'm working on.
