The combination of past and present is often torn apart today. History is no longer regarded as the one that is inherent in the place, of course, that is realized by the normal use of the place. The ordinary face of the city disappears. This means also that the world of places - consisting of meaningful places, is being replaced by “non-places”, monofunctional used areas in urban and suburban areas such as shopping malls, highways, tunnels, airports or tourist residences. The difference is the lack of history, relation and identity.
