high speedreflections on Paris

With each new layer we put on the city, we try to increase the speed of transportation. The definition of a modern city has become: "high speed".
At the same time people try to copy or "steal" ideas from nature in the design and development of the city. But as we all know, nature can not move or transform itself through "high speed". only mutations occur in high speed ....

Where the urban concentration is greatest, at the inner limit of the city (historic centers), or at its outer limit, beyond the city periphery; in an environment formerly referred to as rural that is now a different kind of city. There, in the middle of a “desert”, with the constant background noise of planes, trains and cars, permanently observed by satellites, man and nature can create his own individual world.
