Green Cities

The concept of the green city has two basic components: the first concerns its structuring and planning, and the second its culture. The field of culture is usually overlooked. We overlook, that is to say, the fact that the city is a ghetto for biodiversity, between man and the rest of biodiversity / nature. The city is a ghetto in which a non-symbiotic model takes shape, a model of economies - chiefly on a large scale - which is negative at the level of impacts for the environment. But above all a human soul, or, rather, a human personality is formed which is unable to register environmental otherness in a relationship of solidarity and unity.

At this point, we should look at the city in the light of an internal duality in its development - its despotic and its democratic aspect.

4. Theory and history of the city - Rationalism and visionarism of the city Print E-mail
Green Cities
IMG_2322We have seen the city in a very different way, in shaping a different political and cultural stance. To this stance must be added a more profound psychological world-theory approach, together with the environmental theory of the city. This theory will specify and will provide an approach to issues which involve a different apprehension of roofed, unimproved, natural, and man-made space. It will serve as a critique of the political functioning of the city both in terms of self-government and as a field of formation of the city, as a political-system parameter.
