Great project up today on Archinect:
These large scale infrastructural experiments did not allow for inconsistencies that would erode the power of the plan. Although in many cases the plans still exist, over time smaller scale changes have begun to compete with their authority.
We just had a discussion last night on modernist city planning, and inflexibility was the key weakness addressed. It's great seeing how human activity over the past few decades slowly reshapes the hard form of the modernist city.
