The time and the space of the city

Anna Agata Kantarek


How do we understand the life of the city, its time and its space? What requirements do we impose on the space we live in? What does the future mean to us? Today, answers to these questions are marked with a reflection upon the dynamic and scope of changes which affect us and our cities. What is and should remain the same; what changes or should change? Instead of presenting answers and visions, we ought to ask a number of questions which will define probable directions for the evolution of the form of the city. Is Kazimierz Wejchert’s spatial city – a kind of spatial, pedestrian continuum – the answer?
