What is Human Scale?

bridges edited 6detail from BRIDGES, graphite drawing by Steven E. CounsellMost everything I love about civilized life are in these vignettes. Human scale, real materials used simply, roads and gates, and a gratitude of arches. Am I an anachronism, yes of course, I've never beat primal nature out of my system. We can live harmoniously in nature, become a coherent part of living systems. This for me is almost the definition of paradise. Symmetry without randomness is cruel and impossibly arrogant, machines without limits or an off switch is the royal road to the cyborgs palace. All precision and no play make's Jack a dead boy.
