What People Say

The chief function of the city is to convert power into form, energy into culture, dead matter into the living symbols of art, biological reproduction into social creativity.”

Lewis Mumford

“One thing is sure. The earth is now more cultivated and developed than ever before. There is more farming with pure force, swamps are drying up, and cities are springing up on unprecedented scale. We’ve become a burden to our planet. Resources are becoming scarce, and soon nature will no longer be able to satisfy our needs.” 

Quintus Septimus Florens Tertullianus, Roman theologian, 200 AD

Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.

Jane Jacobs
