Stuyvesant Town, USA




Location | Stuyvesant Town, New York, USA

Le Corbusier has described New York as a city “utterly devoid of harmony.” He wasn’t impressed by the tall towers, and stated that they were a product of an inferiority complex. He believed the city would do better by building buildings that don’t outdo each other, and which were more or less identical.
Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village, also known as Stuy Town, was planned in 1942 as a post-war affordable housing project for war veterans and is an early example of a towers in a park design in New York. The idea of the design was to create a country within a city, and was created by Robert Moses. The design has however resemblance to Le Corbusier’s Radiant City; separating pedestrians from cars and commercial spaces.
The town contains 110 cruciform-like buildings with 11,250 apartment units. Only 25% of the area is occupied by the 110 buildings, while the rest is open space.
