Introduction - A Place To Live

Report
“Uit Da Vinci’s aantekeningen blijkt duidelijk
dat hij de stad zag als een soort levend
organisme waarin mensen, goederen,
etenswaren, water en afval moeiteloos
moeten kunnen bewegen en stromen.
Zo blijft de stad gezond.”
(Fritjof Capra, De wetenschap van Leonardo da Vinci).
