For millennia, architects and builders have attempted to rationalize cities into well-functioning and liveable places. While many aspects of a city evolve naturally, other facets result from human interventions and radical imagination. Future City celebrates the visionary urban schemes that have preoccupied architects trying to create a better world from the 1950s to the present.
This ambitious publication assembles several generations of utopian architecture in a single volume. With the city serving as the context and catalyst for the works, the book provides and indispensable resource for contemporary architectural and urban development and innovation in the third millennium.
