"In the beginning Men looked out for Settlements in some secure Country; and having found a convenient Spot suitable to their Occasions, they there made themselves a Habitation so contrived, that private and publick Matters might not be confounded in the same Place."
 
Alberti

"If the world is to contain a public space, it cannot be erected for one generation and planned for the living only. It must transcend the life-span of mortal men; without this transcendance into a potential earthly immortality no politics, no common world and no public realm is possible."
 
Hannah Arendt

Master Plan for the New Hafenviertel, Berlin-Tegel (1980-1983)
 
by Léon Krier (Assistant: Francisco Sanin)
 
 

"If we speak of public space, we speak of of its quality, of its type, of its measurements, of its proportions. If order and measure are proper to every divine creation, it must therefore also be true fo every human creation. Without measure and without form, terrestrial things cannot exist; they exist only as sickness, disorder, uproar."
