Exploring the Collage City

Photographer: Armando Martinez

From Collage City:

An icon of the good society, the terrestrial shadow of an idea, the classical utopia was, necessarily, addressed to a conspicuously small audience; and its architectural corollary, the ideal city—no less an emblem of universal and final good—is to be imagined as an instrument of education addressed to an equally limited clientèle. As with the advice of Machiavelli, the ideal city of the Renaissance was primarily a vehicle for the provision of information to the prince; and, as extension of this, it was also an agent for the maintenance and decorous representation of the state….

Private glimpses of final goodness could only encourage the public appetite; and, as the stock of the prince and what he represented began to fall, so his strange models… became scheduled for massive revision. For now, as the populace increasingly entered the picture, not only the idea but also the empirical condition of society became of significance.

Colin Rowe and Fred Koetter, 1978.
