"Try to understand that as a single urbanist you are not going to be able  to do much of anything. Go into the city and find partnerships with  people from different backgrounds. As an activist, stop waiting for  permission. Stop entering competitions. Start to actually address the  things you think are critical, because those spaces in the city are  those that no one has competitions on. These are the spaces where we  should be right now, and this is the perfect generation to ask these  questions.” - Miguel Robles-Duran, Director of the MS Design and Urban Ecologies, from Parsons The New School for Design in interview in This Big City main website
