Whatever we do, fixed order will always remain just a fragile achievement - the world simply doesn't want to keep frozen in stable configurations.
Always new forces will keep shaping cities.
Haussmann's radical interventions in 19th century's Paris are a perfect example of a new order imposed over an old one.
But any new layer will be in turn overwritten by another one.

No, these structures are not free of practicality. But they answer to practical needs we just can't figure out now. We can't understand future urban structures and their raison d'ĂȘtre more than Robin Hood could understand a Jumbo Jet.

But we can draw them.
