In the draft of the utopia city and the map of what the utopia city could theoretically look like, both rally on the ideas of a compact city that utilizes industrial hemp crop, self-sustaining, and off-limit to private automobiles. However, as every one knows a utopia city does not actually exist due to factors like politics, the economy, people’s beliefs, and all sort of other issues. Although, the aspects of the utopia city mentions above are not actually impossible, all three of the ideas were based on real world examples. The realization that a city could possibly implement ideas, that were once theories and imagination, is fascinating. In spite of this, a few famous 19th and 20th century urbanists, such as Ernest W. Burgess, Max Weber, and Georg Simmel, and Iris Marian Young would be quick to argue and to express their concerns of the unfavorable aspects of the city, while completely marginalizing its potentials. In their claims, sometimes based on empirical data, they preconceived the city as a stagnant place, an area with deteriorate humanly behavior, and a region completely detached from agricultural life. However, I argues that a city is a place that is fluid, constantly evolving, and integrating ideas, and a convergence location that diversifies our knowledge of others.
