Aims: Standardise dwellings. Get rid of the ‘chaotic’ jumble of streets, shops and houses and replace them with zoned cities. Different areas for work, home and leisure.

  37. Wells Coates, 1934: “What is the essential intention of the art of architecture? Reduced to it’s simplest elements, architecture is the art of providing ordered shelter for a multitude of human activities…Every change in human conditions brings with it new possibilities of relationships of human needs, and the necessity to order them anew to give them form, and freedom, and fullness and richness of life…As creative architects we are concerned with a future which must be planned, rather than a past which must be patched up”
