    Abstract:
    What I have tried to do here is to clarify and redefine the idea of environment in a way that recognizes its contextual character and includes humans, and so cannot be objectified. Similarly, environmental forms must not be understood as objects of experience but as constituents in an experiential, aesthetic field. We may even consider the urban environment the primum exemplem, the primary instance, of the social character of environmental experience and recognize that it directly reflects the consequences of political decisions.
