SPUR Evening Symposium: The Rational City: The troubled legacy of top-down planning
"Modernist planners and architects sought to address substandard housing conditions and provide light, air and green space through urban planning and design. Yet in creating the "City of Tomorrow," they destroyed many of the places they tried to save. What can we learn from the Moderns’ vision – and its pitfalls – today? Join panelists Dan Solomon, architect with Solomon E.T.C., a WRT Company; Anthea Hartig of the National Trust for Historic Preservation; Fred Blackwell, director of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency; and exhibition curator Benjamin Grant."
