Co-operation between the architects and the working population as a whole must be pushed to the point where something of the aspirations, the dream, living in all our minds, finds expression in the new architecture.

5 For Geddes the survey was never only about the expansion of knowledge but, rather, about an expanded awareness of the environment and about man’s place within it. As the cornerstone of the new science of civics, the survey was an ode to man’s capacity for self-determination. The Civics Section of the Sociological Society, which was founded and led by Geddes, complemented the Eugenics Section led by Francis Galton. Eugenics explored the evolution of society in so far as it was determined by biological heredity, while civics studied society as a nondeterministic project of cultural evolution that provided concrete points of entry towards self-determination by means of cultural education and of the care for the material heritage.
