The French architect Le Corbusier thought that crowded cities were bad for people. He tried to refashion them and create new urban designs with a building style that became known as Brutalism. He thought he could change how cities worked.
As an experiment in urban planning, it failed. Many of the attempts at redesigning cities have been knocked down or those living in them wish they would be.
It shouldn't surprise us. Most attempts at fundamental reform fail. They either fail to get off the ground or, if implemented, they fail to achieve what they were meant to.
