 Pope, Hollow Spaces
Just as the historical city can no longer stand as an alibi for a ``fringe'' development of questionable standards, it can no longer stand as an alibi for architects and urbanists who prefer (who wouldn't?) the more humane and civilized virtues of traditional urbanism.
It is painfully clear that the forces of development do not want, and cannot afford, traditional urbanism unless it is economically simulated, confined to commodity centers such as malls and amusement parks, or purchased as ``surplus'' in exclusive enclaves by the wealthiest members of the population.
Which is to say that the architecture of the city is thoroughly preconditioned by the collapse of the universal value which preceded it.
