… if we were to ask Patrick Abercrombie today about his feelings on culture and creativity, I think he would raise an eyebrow and smile about the idea that planners can have any direct impact on culture in the city. Then, after a minute of reflection, he would suggest that without creativity planners cannot fulfil their ambitions to create cultural environments for the cities of tomorrow, and he would agree that only creative planning provides a survival strategy for the cultural identity of the European city and its multi-cultural citizens in a period of globalisation.
