Kaupunki on ihmisen koti

City is the place of man

The city is is the place of man, firstly, by being the place where man is at home, where he dwells. Secondly, the city is the place of man by being the place of man s ontological origins, the place where he comes from. The city is not the place where man dwells in the sense that there are people who live in villages and others who live in cities. The city is not just one possible residence, a chance address. Rather, the fact that man dwells always involves the city and creates or produces such a material, spatial and social relationship that is the ground of the Dasein of the city.
