Transcript of The Crystal Palace

Question from Katherine Blackwelder
I am currently brainstorming for ideas and writing my answer to the first question of option 1 you gave us for Essay 1. I am a little confused, and I was wondering what exactly you mean when you say "culture that tries to capture the urban experience." What does it mean to "capture the urban experience?" Is that the same thing as saying "embrace modernity?"

Nevsky Prospect
(St. Petersburg, 1830s)
"It [the Crystal Palace] is all ready-made and computed with mathematical exactitude ... and when it is complete, every possible question will vanish, simply because every possible answer will be provided."
You believe in a crystal edifie that can never be destroyed, an edifice at which one would not be able to stick out one's tongue, or to thumb one's nose, even on the sly. And I am afraid of this edifice just because it is of crystal and can never be destroyed, and becaue one cold not stick out one's tongue at it on the sly.
Man loves to create and build roads, that is beyond dispute. But ... may it not be that ... he is instinctively afraid of attaining his goal and completing the edifice he is constructing? How do you know, perhaps he only likes that edifice from a distance and not at close range, perhaps he only likes to build it, and does not want to live in it.
