    We have everywhere an absence of memory.

    Architects sometimes talk of building with context and continuity in mind, religious leaders call it tradition, social workers say it's a sense of community, but it is memory we have banished from our cities.

    We have speed and power, but no place.

    Travel, but no destination.

    Convenience, but no ease.
