  • What does it take to move a city? Beyond bulldozers and diggers and workers with picks and shovels to do the actual labour, what is it? Sometimes I feel that the city itself exerts some kind of pressure. It drives us and thus itself. It is a collective that pushes us forward. It can't help but compare itself with other parts of itself, testing relevance and purpose and beauty and function. It keeps redefining itself. A city is an organism that thrives on ambition. It seeks out fertile ground, cultivates it, grows itself into it, re-purposes it, sometimes over and over again and then, like all organisms, once it has sucked out what it needs, it moves on leaving its waste behind.
