Planning History Seminar, March 1993 : 1968, a turning point in town planning

(1993) Planning History Seminar, March 1993 : 1968, a turning point in town planning. Crow Collection Association. (Unpublished)


In "The Origin of Modern Town Planning" Leonardo Benevolo writes about the Utopians of the early nineteenth century (Owen, St Simon, Fourier and others) who thought, wrote and acted about planning new idealistic communities, starting from scratch. He claims that these earliest planners had their roots so firmly planted in ideology that information on the history of town planning during this period is to be sought in the history of socialism rather than in specialised technical studies.
