Lewis Mumford

Lewis Mumford
b. 10-19-1895; Flushing, Queens, NY
d. 1-26-1990; Amenia, NY

Historian and philosopher of technology and science, Lewis Mumford is noted for his study of cities and urban architecture. Mumford was influenced by the work of Scottish theorist Sir Patrick Geddes.

Lewis Mumford quotes ~
• “The chief function of the city is to convert power into form, energy into culture, dead matter into the living symbols of art, biological reproduction into social creativity.”
• “The city is a fact in nature, like a cave, a run of mackerel or an ant-heap. But it is also a conscious work of art, and it holds within its communal framework many simpler and more personal forms of art. Mind takes form in the city; and in turn, urban forms condition mind.”
• “New York is the perfect model of a city, not the model of a perfect city.”
• “Forget the damned motor car and build the cities for lovers and friends.”
• “Restore human legs as a means of travel. Pedestrians rely on food for fuel and need no special parking facilities.”
