Yannis Tsiomis

Establishing the innovative value of the urban project today is a problem. To understand if innovation is formal or urban we must investigate projects not only in terms of their image, but also in terms of their meaning, because the value of the project will be evaluated only when the spaces are built and inhabited. The author reflects on this argument, afferming that 'a principal problem is that of the time for reflection that is given to actors and decision-makers before providing the instruments of implementation'.
