Wade Graham, Dream Cities: Seven Urban Ideas That Shape the World
What were the different architectural utopias of the 20th century, how were they successful, and where they failed, wonders Wade Graham in his informative book. From Frank Lloyd Wright to modernists, from rural residences to futuristic habitats – the book shows the scope of architectural ingenuity of modern visionaries. As this is a visual guide of sorts, I decide to use the back cover to signal different approaches described in the book. On the front cover, there is a sketch from 1980 by Arduino Cantafora, Villa banale.
