A city can only be considered innovative and able to evolve, to give priority in its space, public transportation and pedestrian circulation. And their managers should have the courage to innovate, even facing criticism from more conservative sectors. It is the philosophy of “act now, then adjust”, that does not mean lack of planning or inconsequence, but leave the speeches only.

This is shown by the British newspaper The Guardian in a special series on the history of cities.
