Reverie of the civilization
“I sometimes think, how is anyone ever gonna come up with a book, or a painting, or a symphony, or a sculpture that can compete with a great city. You can’t. Because you look around, and every street, every boulevard, is its own special art form.”
— Gil Pender, Midnight in Paris
It is true that Rome, or Paris, or any other picturesque cities, wasn’t built in a day. Beautiful cities are the result of carefully structured, sustainable urban living space planned with the future generations in mind, combined with the serene or vibrant culture of the society living within it. Every societal space is both a scheme and a progression.
Have you ever tried to explore the city you’re living in? The streets, parks, cafes, shops, offices, malls. Are you taking them for granted?
