The Experimental City tells the untold story of the Minnesota Experimental City project, a futuristic attempt to solve urban problems by creating a full-size city from scratch in the isolated woods of northern Minnesota. At the heart of the story is renowned scientist, inventor and comic-strip author Athelstan Spilhaus, who dreams of a new kind of planned city – a truly experimental city that continuously changes to find workable urban solutions. It was a compelling vision, with powerful backers, hundreds of experts, and its own state agency, the Minnesota Experimental City Authority – but an utterly unknown story.
