“There is no logic that can be superimposed on the city; people make it, and it is to them, not buildings, that we must fit our plans.”
― Jane Jacobs

From Vitruvius’s Ten Books of Architecture, we discover that the built environment throughout history could be viewed as a projection of allegories rather than the strict product of reason. By allegories we can further expand on the idea that cities need to be a reflection of the history and culture of the people who occupy the environment, not just a replication of a single product. A city needs to be reflective of the urban subconscious that exists and which in turn reinforces city-form and human development.
