rST as an artist is al)le to ('i-eate
a plan of a chureli or palace
that is perfectly adapted to
its i)iu-poses ; just as, in sueh
cases, it is liis task to work
with a conscientious regard
for all the demands imposed
hy necessityвАФ so artistic city
planning is to be understood
as that wliicli does not work
according to systems, but
according to the specific (-on-
ditions of the case in hand.
Not art alone, but the appropriate development of all the
possible advantages, with due regard to the specific- pi-ohleui,
is the aim. The artistically creative city planner should
seek out all peculiarities of the site, and emphasize them
according to their individuality."
