“During the past 100 years a number of dramatic changes in the character of public life have taken place, all of which makes detailed and careful planning of people an essential theme within the built environment. Comparing street scenes from 100 years ago with present day street scenes, an obvious change in the volume and character of the public life stands out. In the bustling street scenes from around 1900, nearly all people are engaged in some type of necessary activities. Use of the public realm was an important part of daily life, and the spaces were filled to maximum capacity with all kinds of activities; in the process, public space functioned in the ever-present role as the essential meeting place for people.”
