The Man and his Work

The New World of Urban Man

We have now to deal with the feeling man. His senses have certain limits which form the outer boundaries of the human scales. His body has certain dimensions and capabilities which define the human scale of his immediate surroundings; how far he can touch, see, hear, walk or jump are the basic criteria for the definition of the shells to be created around him. These dimensions, which are related to the senses of man, are a cause of confusion but also of primary importance for the formation of our urban world.
