Urban Utopias in the Twentieth Century, 1977

…is the illuminating well-written 1977 book of this well-trodden utopian territory by Robert Fishman – which gives a super great overview of the political and philosophical underpinnings of Howard’s Garden City, Wright’s Broadacre City, and Corbusier’s Radient City – continuing my recent reading list of titles growing out of my fascination with the way in which people self-organize and plan new ways of living together when there is a desire to abandon a current arrangement that is deemed unacceptable or doomed.
