BERLIN, GERMANY, 1991
Mass Movement will look at the logics, patterns, and means of mobility from scratch by first describing the characteristics of good city form and life and then imagining the modes and sites of movement and conjunction that will support them. It will ask why people and things must move. Cities, after all, are giant juxtaposition engines, their purpose to facilitate contact between people. By giving absolute privilege to the body in thinking about the organization and character of cities, Mass Movement will offer a critique of the engineering mentality that governs urban design and propose a fresh theory of urban movement for the new century.
