urbanisation or distruction
in the view of current urban planning and design practice we are constanly relating to superimposition than accomodation ... its non synergetic and always driven by economics of space and land than of human values...would we continue.....

As far as I can see, sooner or later the ever-spreading urban sprawl of most large cities will collapse under the sheer weight of numbers. because there will come a time when people spend more time travelling to and from work than in actually working and this break-point is almost here when people spend three hours to get to work, work for eight hours and then spend another three hours going home.

Therefore would it not be better simply to have linear cities (not a new idea) which allow people shorter journey times to and from work and thus not just more time, but simply time to pause and enjoy being alive.

i do see it as urbanisation, due to the fact we are not static world, therefore there is need to improve on the existing situation to put it on human scale.
