“the suburban metropolis…contains elements, attitudes, and practices of the individual impulse—Hamilton’s pragmatism—side by side with the social good—Jefferson’s utopia. Neither of these desires is fully synthesized or completely digested. This manifested ambiguity, this flux, this incompleteness mysteriously releases me from my ambiguous conscience because I see complexity, movement, energy, potential even hope in their explicit contradiction. It is as if the gap between the two desires leaves room for a future that is ours to make,”
Lars Lerup. After the City
