The Experimental City
In the 1960s, frustrated by the growing problem of urban pollution, Athelstan Spilhaus, a visionary scientist and futurist comic strip writer, assembled a team of experts to develop a bold experiment: the Minnesota Experimental City (MXC). MXC would be the city of the future, a domed metropolis for 250,000 pioneering residents, built from scratch and using cutting-edge technology to prevent urban sprawl and pollution. It was a compelling vision, with powerful backers, hundreds of experts, and its own state agency. But things didn't quite go as planned, as explored in Chad Friedrichs's fascinating look back at the would-be city of tomorrow.
