Webb and William Morris. In distinguishing between polyphonic and ethico-aesthetic vectors of analysis, this
framework is able to capture the heterogeneity of forces at work in the project and the multiple ways in which
these enter in composition with people. In doing so, the essay attempts to expand our mode of understanding
