She discusses the distinctions between urban and country, the bustle and crowds, and the emptiness of landscape. She wrote, “If the function of the figure in the landscape emphasises its emptiness,

and the individual rests in this solitude, the crowd in urban space spills over, overwhelms and bursts through the intended order of the city streets and squares.” (p. 9) She suggests that this breakdown in “intended order”, this “dangerously proliferating and uncontrolled space”, became the haunt of criminals and the sexually deviant, and drove the need for the “‘open’ city – open that is to surveillance”, and the need for “concentrated governmental intervention, reordering and regulation.” (pp. 9-10)
