Otto, Frei. Occupying and Connecting: Thoughts on Territories and Spheres of Influence, with Particular Reference to Human Settlement

Cl. Edition Axel Menges 2009

Book ID: 81633

Cities, estates and routing systems develop, change constantly and fundamentally cannot be planned. Claims to ownership, land and building regulations, planning decisions and political interventions make it difficult for settlement structures to adapt to constantly changing requirements to such an extent that meaningful and totally ecological use of the surface of the earth is becoming increasingly difficult, although new techniques and flexible planning models mean that a connection could be found with the self-designing processes of urban-development history.
