"Big City 1980" (1961) - MIT Centennial Film

MIT professor and architectural engineer John E. Burchard '23 accompanies the program host, Garry Moore, as they consider together what the urban future holds: how and where we will live in 1980, twenty years ahead? They take Philadelphia and Brasilia as examples to illustrate how a city could be transformed. The hour-long program was filmed as part of the CBS “Tomorrow” series on occasion of MIT’s Centennial in 1961. Film to HD transfer courtesy of MIT 150. MIT Museum Collections. [T6151]
