Abstract: Frank Lloyd Wright's Broadacre City was not a haphazard, onetime exercise in urban design. It was rather the result of a lengthy process of reflection on the relationship between the individual and the city, between architecture in singular and architecture in plural. This paper reads Wright's Broadacre City work as the gradual construction and representation of a cognitive framework that would free the individual from the conforming forces of the city. Rather than all revolving around a common center, each and every citizen would become the center of his or her city. All citizens would be united on the one hand by their private stake in the land, on the other hand through the individual search for a common perspective.
