"I think it’s not relevant so much anymore to destroy the buildings, because when you destroy some stuff you destroy part of the city, you destroy the history of the people.
The city when you look at it as an open ground there’s multiple ways: On the rooftops, on the blind wall, under the bridges, in between the buildings, on the gaps… There are always a lot of places where a parasite architecture can be put on.” - Stéphane Malka
"To find a free public space where people from all of the city, all layers of the society are able to come together in a free way, that’s not an easy thing we can do. Most of the time we don’t succeed in this. So I think there’s still a long way to go to design cities. Maybe with textile, that would be great." - Dré Waapenar
"If she were to perceive their true form, they would seem more like architecture than organism, like huge structures composed of intelligence and feeling." Philip Pullman - The Subtle Knife
