What did we truly learn about architecture and urbanism in the past 25 years? Or more urgently, what did we unlearn, or even forget? In urbanism, we have developed, after the final excesses of modernity in the 1980s, an almost seamless / universal consensus, based on parcellation. Each site is routinely subdivided into smaller plots, that are then typically even further divided into clusters of individual operations. Our fear for the megalomaniac and the monolithic has driven us to embrace fragmentation and fractalization as antidote to our earlier madness.
