  20. 20. -the scheme falls into four categories : 1 - Communication network - to connect the railway stations scattered around the periphery of the city - To cut new, wide roads through the heart of the old city - straight avenues were strategically important for troop parades - the boulevard became more important than the square

  63. 63. What was about architecture in the United States in the 19th century?
  64. 64. In 1785 American Congress decided the division of the United States into uniform grid squares for urban planning - more efficiency ( simplicity of its layout, the subdivision of equal plots, - economy ( ease of construction, convenience for vehicle traffic
  65. 65. What about the problems of the grid urban planning? In 1811 New York laid out its streets in a stereotypical grid form Chicago in 1811 was uninhabited In 1900 the population of were 1.7 million people
  66. 66. Population: 15,000 1820 Population: 55,000 1854 Population: 1,698,575 1898
