Their curiosity piqued by native tales of lands teeming with a natural supply of
precious metals and gems, and uncharted regions that were home to many
strange and wondrous sights, some of which seemed to correspond with ancient
European lore, a great many Spaniards were willing to risk everything, including
their lives, for the chance to find treasures said to surpass even their wildest
dreams. A mere twenty years after Christopher Columbus established the first
truly permanent ...

Gynaikopolis: Aristophanes'. Dream. Cities. ALAN. H. SOMMERSTEIN. (
RESPONDENT: PAUL. CARTLEDGE). If I ruled the world, Every man would be
as free as a bird. (Wolf Mankowitz and Cyril Ornadel, Pickwick) Every successful
hero of an Aristophanic comedy changes the world in which he or she lives,
sometimes in a small way (as when in Wasps Bdelykleon transforms his father
from a lover of judging and condemning to a lover of drinking and dancing),
sometimes in a very big ...

Like Zirma,who repeats signs sothat the city exists.Cities are reinventedevery day
, but they have redundancies, regularities and familiar routines. They become
tattoos, impregnated in habits, the skinand awareness. They become as
necessaryas the park wefrequent, the nocturnal sound of the sea, the essential
streets we walk through, the faces and bodies we inhabit,bodies thatalso
comprise the architecture, style and aesthetics of cities. Cities confront our
imaginary maps and the ...

cities Cities are understood and experienced in a range of contradictory yet
reinforcing ways. Fundamental is the interplay between the 'real' city of lived
personal experience and the 'imaginary' city of representation and fantasy. One is
a tangible city of surfaces – of footpaths, buildings and roadways. The other is the
place ...

This is the laboratory in which city planning should have been learning and
forming and testing its theories. Instead the practitioners and teachers of this
discipline (if such it can be called) have ignored the study of success and failure
in real life, have been incurious about the reasons for unexpected success, and
are guided instead by principles derived from the behavior and appearance of
towns, suburbs, tuberculosis sanatoria, fairs, and imaginary dream cities — from
anything but ...

I call frontier city (or frontier region) all cities (or regions) that are not only
polarized on an ethnic or ideological basis (cf Berlin during the Cold War), but
are, above all, disputed because of their collocation on fault-lines between ethnic
, religious or ideological wholes, whether imaginary or not. In summary, a frontier
city is a territory for two dreams. Three elements characterize any frontier city:
sovereignty, double legitimacy and conflict. In the case of Brussels, the
confrontation is, ...

Jaladhar was an imaginary city and imaginary cities are, in a certain sense, lost
cities. These imaginary cities are fuelled by a certain human necessity, like
iridescent lanterns that illuminate dreams. These cities are formed from an
urgency to locate origins, the urge for a myth of embodiment. In absence of place,
there is pain that exists from the memory of what a place might have been had it
ever existed. One wrestles with a traceless landscape as one would with a
chimera. The fact of ...
