Quotes by Tom Turner  (?)

“When classical architecture was revived during the Renaissance, every educated person knew that it symbolised admiration for the achievements of the ancient world. Architecture had become a metaphor for civilisation.”
Tom Turner, City as Landscape: A Post Post-Modern View of Design and Planning

“A metaphor carries an idea from one area of thought to another. Furniture can have feminine legs; a flower is the day’s eye (daisy); an error glares at you; drinks are soft; cash is hard; our lives have a spring and an autumn.”
Tom Turner, City as Landscape: A Post Post-Modern View of Design and Planning

“Metaphors construct, or frame, views of ‘reality’, which can be used in policy-making or planning. They highlight structural characteristics of the world. It is dangerous if those who frame metaphors believe there is only one reality. But if metaphors are recognised as creative constructs, they can have immense value.”
Tom Turner
