Fifty Ideas for the New City

The optimism of World’s Fairs, A.M. Cassandre, and the WPA were channeled into this campaign for the Architectural League’s Urban Omnibus. These posters appeared on fences, scaffolds, and other public spaces throughout New York City to inspire passersby to think about how they can make their cities better.
