New Topographics




There is no human group without well-accustomed routes of movement; none is altogether stationary, and none wanders aimlessly.... In every neighborhood of every great city, people habitually travel, almost unthinkingly, over private routes selected from the maze of streets...The route's course in traversing the intervening country depends upon the character and volume of the traffic, the technical properties of the route, and the nature of the space across which it leads.
