How to Make an Attractive City

6 rules of an attractive city:

(1) Not too chaotic, not too ordered (不要毫無秩序,也不能太規整)
(2) Visible life (看得見的生活感)
(3) Compact (緊密聯繫的)
(4) Orientation & mystery (有定位、方向感及帶有神秘色彩)
(5) Scale (比例)
(6) Make it local (讓城市更切合當地地方性)

We face two main problems:

(1) Intellectual confusion around beauty:We think no one has a right to say what’s beautiful and what’s ugly
(2) Lack of political will (政府缺乏規劃意願)

片段最後講到,一個吸引的城市需要靠政府規劃 政府靠監管整個城市內建築物的高度闊度等相關原則,防止自由市場任意地發展不合適市民生活或只為財團賺錢的建築;而能讓政府有動力推動城市規劃的,便是群眾壓力;市民應透過選舉,發出對城市願景的聲音。
