Beginning as a lightbulb flicker or a sketch on a napkin, the landmarks and sights of our public spaces that we now associate with the vast and impersonal reaches of history all began as living ideas in the minds of spirited dreamers. In this book, Wade Graham explores the visionary works that have set the blueprint for contemporary built spaces. From the utopian superblocks of Le Corbusier to the agrarian revivalism of Frank Lloyd Wright, Wade crafts profiles of the singular individuals who have come to define the places most of us live in. Dream Cities explores our cities in a new way - as expressions of ideas, often conflicting, about how we should live, work, play, make, buy, and think. It tells the stories of the real architects and thinkers whose imagined cities became the blueprints for the world we live in.
