The Urban Challenge: Toward The Plural City

By Leonard Fein

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, June 1966

The Plural City of the 20th and 21st century require planning and thought, so that the popular myths of the urban setting do not impede community development. It is not just desirable, but necessary to build cities that have the virtues of anonymity and interaction, while at the same time building communities with understandings of local and international roots. The plural city of the future must maximize localism and cosmopolitanism side by side.
