MASKED URBANISM


MASKED URBANISM: art festival
“fever, that in its beginning it is easy to cure, but hard to recognize; whereas, after a time, not having been detected and treated , 
it becomes easy to recognize but impossible to cure”  Niccolò Machiavelli
consumption of routine,
parody of muted
in display of perceptive 

burning up of average
rejection of intense
exquisite of left over

monograph of perverted dialogue

needle of moral compass
shifted attuned to sand dunes
submerged in horizon of
masked urbanism

The preface by Kenneth Frampton argues the production of urban knowledge in neo-liberal economy results in aporetic question on limits and scope in the field of urban study. He brings about three important and critical discourses by Christopher Alexander on low rise, high density model, E.J Mishan work on "The Cost of Economic Growth" and Plunz work on "CIty Riffs" demonstrating the linear process of indictment of urban transformation towards maldistribution of resources.
The book brings the analogy of place and ecology, which needs in-depth understanding as both shares concept of place and space. His argument on place based centrality to urban discourse which perhaps has not been dissected theoretically enough as compare to environmental science. He argues further that how biological…
