THE OTHER CITY

This thesis brings my earlier reading on "FORMLESS URBANISM" city of Chanod. The formlessness condition that exist in the city are valuable tradition of soft urbanism and festivals are one of them. There was time in academic world that the cohesion is a formal property and essential one for cities. The uniqueness of urban form is embedded in recognition of cohesive form of the cities. The earlier theoretical account of urbanism dealt with these uniqness attached to social and cultural welfare of the cities. The role of academics and urbanity were strictly controlled by such notion. The recent trend in research is upsetting these notion of cohesion and clarity into spatial contamination of urban form. Although the built-form & architectural heritage bestows the social and cultural personality to the city, the spatial and spectacle event adds the uniqueness to the city.
