Deyan Sudjic places the responsibility of the modern city formation predominantly with developers and to some extent planners (Sudjic 1993). He finds vitality in multilayered complexity; as a proponent of renewal, Sudjic is also scathing about the influence of perceived rosy urban history in fetishizing the preservation of the old through unconvincing arguments about community value.
The position of Dutch architect and theorist, Rem Koolhaas (1994) is that big cities will always be complex, but he alerts us to the danger of synthesizing complexity as a collage, for example in his interview with John Rajchman (Koolhaas 1994):
JR: You say Bigness alone instigates a regime of complexity’ in which programmatic elements react with one another to create new events.’ How does this differ from the sort of complexity Robert Venturi called the difficult whole,’ or Colin Rowe the collage’?
RK: Collage is simulated complexity: instead of a Mondrian-esque composition of slabs, you imagine a Piranesian composition of fragments. It is composed, controlled, limited -it’s a purely visual complexity.
