Generic City, by Rem Koolhas and Bruce Mau. Koolhas views on the contemporary city, ”S, M, L, XL”  1995 (via theatrumorbisterrarum)

Each Generic City has a waterfront, not necessarily with water – it can also be with desert, for instance – but at least an edge where it meets another condition, as if a position of near escape is the best guarantee for its enjoyment.
