  • Half of a library’s operating budget could be generated by the creative output of the people who use that library. Writers, composers, filmmakers, choreographers, artists, inventors, and other creative types could all get their start working on collaborative projects for their own neighborhood library. Established creative talent could donate some of their works to add value to anthologies and other group projects.

  • The drawings Antonio Sant’Elia included in his August 1914 Futurist Manifesto of Architecture are, perhaps, the most famous and influential of the early 20th century, predating many of the avant-garde designs of architects in Germany, France, Holland, and Russia, made a few years later. They are certainly the first by a European architect to project a vertical city, one composed not only of towers, but also of stacked layers of streets, plazas, and the mechanical movement of cars, trams, and trains. Because he died so young, at the age of twenty-eight, killed in a war that he and the other Futurists celebrated as “the sole hygiene of mankind,” he was never able to carry these ideas beyond the few early perspective views, made in 1913 and 1914. Still, they resonate today, even as they seem part of an earlier, more architecturally innocent time.
