    Kenzo Tange, Tokyo Bay Project (1960); transit network and housing quarters

    The 1933 rendering of Plan Obus for Algiers demonstrates Le

    Corbusier's superimposition of modern forms: the

    long arching roadway that

    includes housing- his viaduct city-

    connecting central Algiers to its

    suburbs and the curvilinear complex of

    housing in the heights that

    accesses the waterfront

    business district via an elevated

    highway bypassing the Casbah.
