This talk examines America’s many variations on the idea of the garden city and the suburb, including Frank Lloyd Wright’s Broadacre City, Cloverleaf, and cooperative “Usonias.”  Regionally, we’ll look at Robert Alexander’s Baldwin Hills Village, Jones’s work at Crestwood Heights, Whitney Smith’s Blue Ribbon Tract, Gregory Ain and Garrett Eckbo’s Park Planned Community, and John Lautner’s unbuilt Alto Capistrano.

Free and open to the public.
