polis: a collective blog about cities worldwide

Featured Quote: John Holland

“Buildings are always changing, so that a city’s coherence is somehow imposed on a perpetual flux of people and structures. Like the standing wave in front of a rock in a fast-moving stream, a city is a pattern in time.”

John Holland, from Emergence, 2002
