Jude Law, Breaking and Entering (≈0:26, emphasis added):

Our vision for King’s Cross, for the public spaces of King’s Cross, starts with the premise that we acknowledge an urban landscape is a built landscape. It starts with an argument with society’s phony love affair with nature. We are against the mistaking of grass for nature, of green for nature.

King’s Cross is an area of North London associated with poverty, crime, vice, and urban decay. Our job is to transform the landscape, not decorate it with green. Because how we feel about ourselves, how we behave, is directly affected by the space around us. How we design the outdoors of our city is as important as how we design the indoors.

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
