No man can learn what he has not preparation for learning, however near to his eyes is the object. A chemist may tell his most precious secrets to a carpenter, and he shall be never the wiser, the secrets he would not utter to a chemist for an estate...Our eyes are holden that we cannot see things that stare us in the face, until the hour arrives when the mind is ripened; then we behold them, and the time when we saw them not is like a dream. Emerson
This website is about the Cause of Architecture and the problems of City Planning. References to Scripture are purely coincidental to give credit where credit is due. The KYMAK concept of City and Regional planning develops the cul ture and system of government envisioned by the Founders of our Nation from the first settlers in Virginia in 1609, and Massachusetts in 1620, to our Declaration of Independence in 1776 and our sacred Federal Union by the United States Constitution of 1789 continuing to this day whereby the Law expresses the will of the People. If we will reverence the law, KYMAK shows us how to stop Urban Sprawl while assuring rapid growth with the benefits of Beauty - KYMAK de monstrates how to design cities in accordance with the Law which will enable an aesthetic order that would relieve the unrest that causes crime and mental illness. It is in the interest of public health and safety that KYMAK guidelines be adopted as the basis of all Federal funding for Transportation and Urban and Community development. KYMAK's point of beginning (POB) is near the center of population now; therefore, one goal of KYMAK is to relocate the seat of government from Washington, DC to Jackson County, Missouri. Site Selection is the Architect's prerogative, although that has been a lost cause until now. KYMAK makes it very clear, Site Selection is the Architect's prerogative in their role as the coordinators of the building process. It is time to allow Architects to take charge of the building process, beginning with Site Selection. The solution combines the cities described by Ezekiel and the Apostle John in The Bible with the orderly Township Scheme of Thomas Jefferson and the uniquely American Democratic city planning concept of Frank Lloyd Wright.
PUBLIC POLICY requires orderly development. (The will of the People)
It is the policy of Congress to encourage the rational and orderly (see 13A-11-7) development of our cities, towns and rural areas ...
(b) Existing and future programs must be inter-related and coordinated within a system of orderly development...
(d) The Congress further declares that the national urban policy should - (6) Encourage planned communities. (8) increase coordination among Federal programs...
(b) The Congress further finds and declares that the future welfare of the Nation and the well being of citizens depend on the establishment and maintenance of viable urban communities, and require (1) new centers of population ... (3) Streamlined...
(c) The primary objective is ... (5) ...a better arrangement of residential, commercial, industrial, ...and other needed activity centers.
The KYMAK plan (in combination with the Broadacre City Concept) is fully ready for use and has been offered to Congress for adoption as the basis for orderly, systematic, streamlined, coordinated development as is demanded by the people and expressed in law yet unfulfilled. The KYMAK concept completely supplies and fulfills the demands of the law. Current Federal funding serves only to aid and abet the opposite.
As a public service to architects, KYMAK coordinates will be provided for the beginning of the preliminary design stage of any project. A map for your area (similar to the Mobile Region will show KYMAK guidelines for any site as it relates to a comprehensive plan that covers all of North America.
Major development is in the outer 96 mile-wide zone between the 6000 mile perimeter (blue line on drawing - click on links below) and the orange line is a trunkline - the main transportation route with processing and distribution centers along the 5280-mile peremeter. The Broadacres City concept was designed to apply to railroad corridors but this pattern also applies to the suburban zone of the Mo del City. This will tie all existing transportation routes together in a unified whole.

The Mobile Region map is a part of a larger regional plan. The straight orange line is in the major zone of development which extends to New Orleans and points beyond. The irregular brown line shows the fake Master Plan (official map) proposed in 1965 for continuous growth of the City of Mobile; the dotted green line is the current Mobile city limits. In the orderly and systematic plan Municipal units are about 12 miles square, the size of four townships, and are laid out on a bias to avoid confusion with other survey lines; thus oriented it is an economy toward building life extension. Unit perimeters are rights-of-ways reserved as open space for major transportation routes which can be developed as the need arises. The Mo del-city shown can be adapted to any unit but would apply only to new development particularly of streets and subdivisions; old development remains as long as it is useful or desirable - yellow zone is suburban based on Frank Lloyd Wright's Broadacre City concept, blue is residential, green is agricultural, the red square is the executive compound, the orange is the urban core, dotted green is public land for wild-life preservation. Suggested population densities and distribution and other details are on the Model City page.
