I love the initial statement by Serafini in the interview:
"The design is out there already."
This goes to the very core of true and real sustainable design. This is the exactly opposite to the ideologies and the rationality of the 20th century, first and foremost implemented through PLANNING! The word planning makes me freeze on my back. What it means is administrated "freedom" and imposition of will! Planning can NEVER be human oriented or put humans in relations to nature and history.
NO, design is not to impose, it's to LISTEN! Listen to the land, listen to the people, listen to the history. NEVER to IMPOSE your will. Or the will of money, ideologies, egos and so on.
It's also called Algorithmic Sustainable Design, where you follow a process which will lead you to one of several desirable end-goals. You don't make a plan, you don't follow a plan, you follow the computations of the algorithm. And ABOVE ALL, there is NO MASTER PLAN!
The future of urbanism is BIOURBANISM!
FUCK THE PLANNERS, FUCK THE STARCHITECTS, FUCK THE MASTER PLAN!!!!
LET'S ENTER THE NEW REALM OF BIOURBANISM!
