Modernism and Urban Landscapes
The purpose of this paper is to explore, through the three examples of Germany in the Weimar Republic, China and New York, how different types or classes of people have claimed and used urban space in ways that challenged expectations and, in fact, defined urban modernity in these areas. This discussion supports the hypothesis that the relationship between state, political and cultural constructs of space can have very different outcomes when brought into the light of the real world and how people really live in urban areas.
