Unbuilt Urbanism

robert-moses-highway-plan

From 99% Invisible, this podcast (after the first two minutes and before the last five minutes of fundraising and ads) focuses on unbuilt urban plans from San Francisco and Manhattan’s history. The topic of unbuilt (utopian) projects has been gaining interest lately, in publications like this one and public exhibits like this one. There are some great nuggets in the discussion–particularly, this tumblr site is a cool, yet so simple, idea.

If you enjoy the podcast format and topics of design/urbanism, here’s another episode from 99% Invisible on how developers are using poetry in Santiago, Chile.
