Planning in this sense is analogous to historical fiction, but unlike the backward-looking literary genre, its clipped narrative creates an anticipatory endpoint. It romances the nostalgic future, a potential urban reality that seduces with sentiment drawn from a modified or improved present or past…The distance to the future waxes and wanes with the stresses and strains of the present. — Andrew M. Shanken
