The The Unemployed Graduates of Calvin's esteemed pre-architecture program


We'll start out with suburbia!

“The cities will be part of the country; I shall live 30 miles from my office in one direction, under a pine tree; my secretary will live 30 miles away from it too, in the other direction, under another pine tree. We shall both have our own car. We shall use up tires, wear out road surfaces and gears, consume oil and gasoline. All of which will necessitate a great deal of work ... enough for all.”

—Le Corbusier, The Radiant City (1967)
