  12. "Web must be a highly-flexible system in a rapidly changing world. At the scales at which architect-planners are operating to-day, it is not possible to conceive of any long-range plan based on fixed spatial or compositional relationships. Even as the first part of such a plan is
    realized, it modifies the conditions which govern the second and, by continuous feedback, the whole plan. The non-centric, open-ended web seeks to respond to this life process."

  15. "The important question is not “how?” but “why?” or “what for?” Town planning, like architecture, has to help society to achieve its ends, to make life in a community as rich as possible, to aspire to a présent utopia. — We have no quarrel with the past except insofar as it is used to compromise the future. — The past can guide us but past techniques (composition) are of little avail. — Présent techniques and présent means must be used to open as many doors to the future as possible."
