“The cities that I miss are not perfect; indeed, they display no sign of intending to seek perfection. Behind their vibrancy and wealth is the depth of their cultures. Depth is something accumulated, not drawn up in a plan. In their formative years, did their govt’s outline any vision?”
Seen in Straits Times today.
Reminds me of what I mentioned awhile ago about loving imperfection. Anyway it was a great article on culture in cities, by a lianhezaobao writer too. Nice.
