reflexivity: city as autobiography

In the Gay Science Nietzsche writes: “We wish to see ourselves translated into stone, and plants, we want to take walks in ourselves when we stroll around […] buildings and gardens (280).” And Wittgenstein writes in Culture and Value: “Working in philosophy – like work in architecture in many respects – is really more a working on oneself. On one’s own interpretation. On one’s way of seeing things. (And what one expects of them.) (16c)”
