On paper, it all seemed perfect – modernist urban design projects offered new, creative ideas that were promising better living conditions accessible to the all people living in a city. But relatively quickly upon the construction, most of them didn’t completely fulfil the promise. Some of them even were a total disaster.

Where and why did it all go wrong? In this seminar, we looked at the, now, classic urban design projects around the world in order to understand and outline their trajectories from a brilliant idea to a not-so-successful housing projects, and what lesson did they teach us.

In words of Isaac Newton: if you want to see the future, you need to climb on the shoulders of Giants.
