THE EXPERIMENTAL CITY
A fascinating story of the Minnesota Experimental City (MXC). In the 1960s, a group of visionary scientists developed a plan for a domed megacity designed to disrupt the modern extravagant urban lifestyle. The initiative was opposed by the city community and environmentalists, who questioned the utopian promises of its founders. The Experimental City is the chronicle of a clash between scientific progress and traditional views on the city and its functions.
