Genesis of form. Motion is at the root of all growth.
— Paul Klee, “On Motion,” c. 1925 (via socks)
Atlanta’s basic form - but it is not a form - its basic formlessness is generated by the highway system, a stretched X surrounded by an O: branches running across the city connecting to a single perimeter highway. The X brings people in and out; the O - like a turntable - takes them anywhere. They are thinking about projecting a super-O somewhere in the beyond.
