Abstract

After World War II, the U.S. embarked on a massive building initiative, creating housing where little or none had existed before outside of cities and tearing down existing housing in cites to replace it with new housing and commercial and cultural centers. Without the destruction of entire sections of cities wrought by the war in Europe, we created our own forms of destruction and (re)construction, significantly changing the landscape and, for many, the way of life.
