"In an open system, made of multiple truths in inconsistent systems, 'enabling the city' becames necessary, that is, creating a free environment to propose 'futuristics', open to intuit, discuss and identify 'tendencies', technically competent to create 'sceneries' and 'provisions', creative to mobilize needed 'competitive inovations' flexible and practical for by the 'adaptative poliarchy' to manage and execute such 'transformations'."
