stability is a desirable state; it promotes manageability. the thesis is that the visuality and aesthetic of constancy will buttress the actual state of constancy while recognizing that the visuality in itself is not an adequate measure to establish this. montevideo’s vacant aesthetic needs to be aggravated as much as it needs to be celebrated. from an asian perspective, the situation in uruguay is a promising relief. the evenness contained in uruguay appears to be a virtue simply because it stands in strong contrast against the asian city. a counter model of development should capitalize on the merits of vacancy. evenness as a function of constancy is also desirable from an administrative perspective. the places in the world that have been struck by massive change are the ones that have fluctuating graphs of growth and demographics. such graphs are potentially prone to civil unrest and other complex societal/economic disturbances. they are aslo formidable challenges in governance.
