Rethinking the Essence of Urbanism
Charles R. Wolfe writes:
"Another facet of urbanism comes from that indescribable human dance of history, people and place that occurs when we simply like what we see. It is exciting when something resonates, such as purposefully preserved fragments of what was--more than Colonial Williamsburg or Sturbridge--but places which take us back to a sustainable set of circumstances with a simple, irrational gestalt: to live there for a year rather than a day, or to take the places home."
