New Urban Exo-structure
Fez (Est. 789) is one example of arrested evolution, hence a World Heritage site. It is also an example of skipping technologies by virtue of inordinate obstacles, economic or physical. The old Fez skipped the Horse-and-cart era and the bicycle, train, bus, tram eras. It also skipped the piped natural gas, wired telephone and cable television eras. All these civic infrastructure investments were either unaffordable or impossible to implement. As soon the wireless, dish-based communication technology emerged, so did the individual exo-structure on practically every building; The view of a 1300-year old crumbling city with the ultra-modern technology on its roofs, says a lot about limitations and people's aspirations and needs.
