“El propio observador debe desempeñar un papel activo al percibir el mundo y tener una participación creadora en la elaboración de su imagen. Debe contar con el poder de cambiar esa imagen para adaptarse a necesidades cambiantes. Un medio ambiente que está ordenado en forma detallada y definitiva puede impedir que aparezcan nuevas pautas de actividad. Un paisaje en el que cada una de las rocas narra una historia puede hacer difícil la creación de nuevas historias. Aunque ésta pueda no parecer una cuestión decisiva en nuestro actual caos urbano, indica, con todo, que lo que buscamos no es un orden definitivo sino abierto a las posibilidades, capaz de un ininterrumpido desarrollo ulterior.”
Kevin Lynch, The Image of the City
