"Nytenking - Kvalitet - Respekt"

Kommentar.
"Nytenking - Kvalitet - Respekt"

Dette er slagordet til Østre Toten kommune.

- Nytenking = det motsatte av retrovativ tenkning. Ergo, en retrovativ person kan ikke tas alvorlig. Hans/hennes tanker blir derfor høflig ignorert i stillhet.

- Kvalitet = det produktet mottaker søker oppfylt. Vel, i alle fall var det noe slikt jeg lærte da jeg gikk på fagskolen en gang for lenge siden, i økonomi og markedsføring. Den gjennomstrømsteknologien mitt sted er gjennomboret av er derfor for meg det motsatte av kvalitet. For de subeksurbane er den selvsagt den høyeste oppfyllelse av kvalitet, ellers kan de jo ikke overleve i bunkerne sine.

Dette er ikke et NIMB-tilfelle (Not In My Backyard). Det har å gjøre med at for å kunne være en kulturbærer må mitt sted inkarneres i en retrovativ teknologi sammen med et retrovativt levesett.

- Respekt = En dyp ærefrykt for et steds historiske egenart. Denne ærefrykten forsvant med etterkrigsgenerasjonen, og siden har det bare blitt verre. Allikevel er jeg overbevist om at vi nå ser kimen til en ny retrovativ generasjon.

Jeg tapte kampen for ordinær menneskelig eksistens

Min oldefar og Totenåsens apostel fikk oppleve den høyeste form av ordinær menneskelig eksistens. Nå er denne tapt. Ingenting er lenger ordinært.
To get there at all, the first thing is for people to grasp what the main problem is. The creation of a world that is beautiful and in harmony, adequate for the people who live in it, supporting both the personal and the community, urban life, plant life, animals and rivers and all the world we treasure, can only happen if what takes place in the formation of buildings and towns is a continuous unfolding of the whole. That is the way that nature works, and of course necessarily so. For thousands of years all traditional architecture also went forward like that. Briefly it may be called “adaptive morphogenesis.” It’s an adaptive process which allows the whole to guide the formation of the parts created within in it, so it all fits together comfortably. It allows minut adaptations at many points going forward.

The system of planning, regulation, design, and production that we have inherited from the relatively early part of the 20th century makes all of that impossible. CNU is a strongly motivated and in part highly sensible way of addressing this problem. It has arisen from highly sensible people, architects, who are now in a panic because they see the problem, want to do something about it, don’t really know what to do about it, and so they try to hark back to history and historical forms. Their motive is completely understandable, but their means cannot succeed, because they hope to do this within the same technical means of production that are producing the most far-out and absurd postmodern concoctions. Harmonious order cannot be produced by copying the shapes of the past, although I suppose it might be mildly better than indulging in the very horrific architectural fantasies that are deliberately intended to shock. But at root it is the system of production and the processes of production which are at fault. Until these are changed, architecture cannot get better.

This is a very large undertaking. My main reason for having faith that this insight will gradually become a common insight, and be carried forward in the next few decades, is that both complex systems theory and biology already understand these things in their own ways. But oddly enough, the very large community of architects, planners, and ecologists committed to sustainable architecture, building, and planning have not yet really understood the concept of wholeness. It’s the crux of the well-being of the Earth and also the crux of the well-being of human cultures: and it has always been so. Whether people understand it or not, or are willing to believe it or not, that does explain why I have spent the last 27 years writing these four books. It has taken every ounce of energy I have to put it together in an intellectually comprehensible fashion. - Christopher Alexander
