"Streets are the dwelling place of the collective. The collective is an eternally wakeful, eternally agitated being –in the space between the building fronts– lives, experiences, understands, and invents as much as individuals do within the privacy of their own four walls. […] More than anywhere else, the street reveals itself in the arcades as the furnished and familiar interior of the masses." Walter Benjamin, Arcades Project, M 3 a, 4.
