Cities Have Their Origins in the Human Mind

Urban development is cultural development. Cities represent progress, innovation, and technological development. TRIAD Berlin is working on a concept that brings ideas to life.

What do cities mean to humans? And why did they build them? The concept aims at exploring the transcultural and transhistorical elements of urban life. By putting the focus on common features of cities, both differences and similarities are identified. For example: What roles do markets play in different cultures? How did they change over time?           

Cities have their origins in the human mind. That's why understanding cities requires defining the primal needs that characterize humans.
