"To look at the cross-section of any plan of a big city is to look at something like the section of a fibrous tumor"
- Frank Lloyd Wright
About this Quote
Frank Lloyd Wright's quote is a metaphor for the disorderly and disorganized nature of large cities. He compares the cross-section of a city strategy to a fibrous growth, suggesting that the city is a mass of twisted and interconnected streets, buildings, and other structures. This metaphor suggests that the city is a living organism, constantly growing and changing. It likewise suggests that the city is a complex and unforeseeable system, with no clear pattern or order. Wright's quote is a pointer of the intricacy of city life and the requirement for careful preparation and style to ensure that cities remain habitable and efficient. It also acts as a caution against the dangers of untreated urban spread and the requirement for thoughtful metropolitan planning.
