City Speculations examines how different methods of urban representation affect the way cities are planned, constructed, and experienced. Conceived in response to the Panorama of the City of New York - the monolithic scale model of New York City built by Robert Moses - the architects, artists, planners, and educators included in this volume employ a variety of idiosyncratic techniques to depict the city. From the wryly humorous to the disturbingly tragic, these diverse "speculations" offer an alternative to the unified vision presented by the Panorama.
