The heterogeneous city is the stimulating city: diverse complex, tolerant. The ideal heterogeneous city has a kind of dynamic equilibrium; the real one is frequently, if not constantly, involved in struggles over terrain and influence. A panel of activists, artists, and analysts discuss why heterogeneity is so crucial to great urbanism, what threatens it, and what it takes to sustain it.
