Description

This is a really visionary and quite inventive view of Manhattan, facing Central Park. Drawn by Genoese architect and engineer Renzo Picasso in 1929, it's a futuristic scheme of how traffic could have been reorganized in a multilayered way. It shows four lanes for traffic: a yellow one for cars and other automobiles running at normal speed, a red express lane for fast-moving vehicles that weaves underneath the yellow lane, a green one for trains, and a blue level for "areo-garages"—a network of runway-topped hangars so planes and other air traffic could fly among (and through!) the skyscrapers. Diving under every other avenue, this boulevard provides a speedy connection between the east and west sides of New York.

ON A CURIOUS NOTE: Picasso “had very close ties” with the New York City government at the time and he based this work on information from over 220 pages of urban planning proposals he obtained from the mayor’s office.
