Memory and Cities: Discovering Transitions Through Urban Maps

  • 160 Accesses

Abstract

This chapter is the starting point of our exploration of memory and cities, particularly through urban maps. This is mainly done by discovering (city) transitions and how they appear in different urban contexts (see Sect. 2.3). We first, however, explore the concept of palimpsests and its complexity in urbanism. In doing so, we argue for the importance of the past in the present and the future, highlighting how the city’s past layers resemble the richness of urban narratives, heritage, and culture.

The Charm of a city, now we come to it, is not unlike the charm of flowers. It partly depends on seeing time creep across it. Charm needs to be fleeting. Nothing could be less palatable than a museum-city propped up by prosthetic devices of concrete.
