«TOWER CITY» AND «GARDEN CITY» UTOPIAS IN THE PARADIGMS OF POSTMODERN PHILOSOPHY


This article is a commentary on the global theme «20th Century Architecture. Utopias and Reality» raised in his last non-completed architectural project by A.V.Ikonnikov. Controllability as a machine rule utopia (according to L. Mumford) with regard to urban design and building processes, as a matrix of form, is a major issue in «open society» and «repressed consciousness» in spite of the contemporary revolution in information technologies.

Key words: utopia; paradigm; «tower city»; «garden city»; models of an ideal polis
