Abstract:
Our imaginary mid-eighteenth-century proposal is a model of land organization that projects a shared private space on a newly emerging capitalist economy. Private here does not mean individualized but instead indicates a space that remains independent from the outside economy, and land in this context is not zoned to extract use value but shared and mutually improved. Set in the past, this design speculation renders an instance of “what if?” Pondering the answer leads to the follow-up, “so, what now?”
