‘The author challenges what he calls “architects’ sentimental notion of the concentric urban plan” and takes us on an “excursion through the corridor city’s built enclaves and colonized landscapes.” Specifically, Boris Brorman Jensen follows Ring Road 02 around Aarhus past the “isolated utopian clusters” that characterize contemporary urbanization. A concluding description of Aarhus city centre is clearly coloured by the experiences of this excursion.’
