By Juliet Kinchin

 
During the Great Depression, as the United States struggled with soaring levels of poverty, hunger, and unemployment, architect Frank Lloyd Wright presented a radical new plan for American community life. His Broadacre City, an expansive vision of urban and environmental renewal, focused on personal independence, respect for nature, and the equitable distribution of resources—including a “broadacre” of land for every family. Wright’s career was in decline in the early 1930s, and he staked his comeback on this ambitious proposal, which he continued to refine until his death in 1959. A colossal relief model of Broadacre City—painstakingly constructed by Wright and his apprentices in 1934–35—is a highlight of the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. In this volume of MoMA’s One on One series, design historian Juliet Kinchin examines the ideals and contradictions of this unrealized project by one of the twentieth century’s most influential architects.
 
Each volume in the One on One series is a sustained meditation of a single work from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. A richly illustrated and lively essay illuminates the subject in detail and situates that work within the artist’s life and career as well as within broader historical contexts. This series is an invaluable guide for exploring and interpreting some of the most beloved artworks in the Museum’s collection. View the entire series here. 48 pp.; 35 illus.
