How would cities look like if we, the inhabitants, were to say?
As the architecture critic Jane Jacobs already saif in the 1960s about American cities:
we do not improve dysfunctional parts by demolishing and overbuilding them.
That will only defer the problems for a while.
So let's look at a more socially, cultural, ethically and ethnically conscious city planning!
The analysis is based on a principle in psychotherapy where spatial relations are
compared to inner ones. The distance and spatial position of another participant of a
system in relation to yourself tells about functional and dysfunctional structure.
That is what I use for analysing people's built cities.
