Future urban visions from Life Magazine, December 1964.
Above, Urbmobiles and Cruisers take off from Master Modemixer, a transport hub that enables quick transfer between various owned or rented vehicles, automatic parking and a motel with mobile cabins.
Below, designed to fight sprawl is Chicago West with a two-mile-long main street that doubles as a railroad and highway corridor. The life on the elevated platforms was (once again) envisioned to be happy and lively, because you would live in sundecked apartments, shop at a department store (MN), “behind a terraced a hotel and cabaña covered beach" with an easy commute to Chicago.
