Abstract

We often see the visualisation of a major project in
the city or even the renewal development of a major
street or area. But what will happen, as usual, to
portions of the project when they are parcelled out
to different developers to undertake, and what will
happen to the overall scheme in say thirty or forty
years' time when every development is completed.
The forces at work in our cities are so diverse, and
the rate of social change has accelerated so rapidly,
that it is most unlikely that such a large project, if
it is constructed at all, will end up looking like the
original design. All too often, the merij. of the
published design derives from the architecture of the
proposed buildings, rather than from any underlying
coherence in the plan itself. What if the building is
not placed at precisely the angle shown in the drawings?
What if materials vary; what if changes in architectural
taste occur? What if changes in function or economics
force major changes in size or shape of buildings? Will
the design still make sense...
