“In order to understand, inhabit, and evaluate space, it is crucial to recognise its
temporal aspect. Space does not simply exist in time; it is of time. The actions
of its users continually recreate its structures. This condition is often forgotten
or repressed, as Western society is generally still based on the idea of a static,
non-negotiable space. Commercial interests also nurture this idea, as people
have realised that static objects and objective spaces are more marketable
than their relative and instable counterparts.”
