The city is never already there; it is a perpetual work in progress. What seems disorderly to the untrained eye is in fact often perfectly sensible.
What began as a regular jostling and tugging of the idea in a brainstorm soon took off as an imaginative exercise that encouraged creative and personal readings of the concept and the making of its visual expressions.
