Due to urban crisis by virtue of industrialization and migration, major cities have transformed into quintessential reality of what is urban. The seemingly disorder are result of political, social and economic shifts. The cities are uniformly destined towards capitalistic goals. There is definitely a wider gap that exists in apprehension of such phenomena & strategy to deal with them. The progressive Urbanist finds their theoretical foundation into the realm of science within the academic domain. The progressive ideals are never managed to mend the way towards PROFESSINALISM & ADVOCACY in dealing with the situation.
Today urbanism is tending towards the “rational comprehensive model”, which objectively defined goal is fixing the coordinate of “laissez faire” nature of collective ideals. The methodology is seems progressive under the pretext of “Objective Consciousness” but embedded with odour of elitism, centralization and self fulfilling prophecy. The dichotomy that exist are evident in terms of elitism vs anarchy, relation vs manipulation, centralization vs de centralization, program vs laissez faire, control vs chaos, objective vs subjective.
The paradigm needs to challenge the present day objective system which in turn may facilitate the system of human activities & the city rather than cities for human activities. The shifting paradigm may able to recognize the manifold activity which may make up for the understanding of unified urban form rather than remained locked in objectivism of past.
“IN DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES, UNDERSTANDING OF OUR SOCIETY & URBANISM IS PAROCHIAL IN NATURE, MASKING THE SURPLUS UNDER IMAGINATIVE DISGUISE & PHILANTHROPIC IDEALS”
