"Cartesian city-form, first and foremost, resists unstructured change and flouts urban memory. Its clockwork feature is the champion of repetitive routine and the master of predictable settings. In absorbing humans in its fold, this mechanistic aspect of contemporary city-form also denies them much of their own spontaneity, authenticity and autonomy. The private and public green space, usually only a deprived replica of natural wilderness, comes to patch over this failing but does not fundamentally resolve it." 

- Abraham Akkerman and Ariela F. Cornfeld
