Full Text: Streitfall Stadtmitte

In einer Welt ohne Grenzen ist Heimat kein Begriff des Ortes, 
sondern der Zeit. 
Edgar Reitz, Tagesspiegel 5.9.2004 
... we may say that deeply-loved places are not necessarily visible, 
either to ourselves nor to others. Places can be made visible by 
a number of means: rivalry or conflict with other places, visual 
prominence, and the evocative power of art, architecture, ceremo- 
nials and rites. Human places become vividly real through drama- 
tization. Identity of place is achieved by dramatizing the aspira- 
tions, need, and functional rhythms of personal and group life.
