This text is a dramatic account of utopian visions of the city in the 20th century. It explores their radical demands for new spaces and ways of living, and considers their effects on planning, architecture and struggles to shape urban landscapes. Such visions, it shows, have played a crucial role in informing understandings and imaginings of the modern city.
