The Addendum

If I have any prototype, it is the detective

If I have any prototype, it is the detective.

— Sometimes when I think of my research and my work around cities, I compare it to others and balk. I think of all the high theory and the sophisticated language of more reflexive urbanists and I do not connect. If I have any prototype, it is the detective. For me it keeps being reduced to simple things: means, motive, and opportunity, but really it is all motive in the end. Theory and grand meta narratives only concern me when they help explain that motive.
