Broadacre City, Frank Lloyd Wright, argued that the idea of the urban center was no longer relevant. Each American family would be given an acre of land from the federal land reserves on which they would build a home and grow their own food.  His drawings and models showed the area filled with his designs, including Usonian houses. The scheme depended almost exclusively on private automobile.

Frank Lloyd Wright, project, All-Steel Houses for Los Angeles, 1938  |   Proposed for an area bounded by La Brea Ave., Slauson Ave. and Overhill Drive.   The vertically striated tower is a leftover from the original scheme, which was to have consisted of vertical steel channels 9" wide and up to 17' long, with light-weight concrete fill for insulation. These alternated with 9" x 17' windows, hinged at the top, opening outward.
