[_critic]: Stanley Tigerman’s proposal in 1965

Stanley Tigerman is Chicago’s resident radical — and this concept, from the mid-1960s, fits the bill. The concept borrowed from Le Corbusier’s Radiant City plan and Robert Moses’ (also unbuilt) Lower Manhattan Expressway, imagining a city where prism-shaped offices sheltered grand expressways, leaving wide swatches of green space open to the public. Now the new photo collage is trying to re-bring the old proposals of Chicago, and critic them.
