“As case studies, Christiania and Orestad offer numerous insights into evaluating urban design from a political framework.  When presented as urban acts of insurgency, they expose the difficult but necessary task of designing cities for conflict.  In this context, conflict can be defined as the political friction that fosters democratic debate.  As sculptors of urban space, architects and urban planners must become more conscious and purposeful regarding the political implications of our work.” – James Thompson, “Something is Rotten in the State of Denmark: Architectural Insurgency in Copenhagen”, Conditions Magazine #5/6, 2010 p. 115
