Doxiadis #03 – on NBC

Doxiadis was one of the most celebrated postwar planners as the ekistic theory found a fertile ground, especially in the U.S. He appeared several times on TV and Radio broadcasts:

– CBS / Radio interview with C. A. Doxiadis as Greek delegate to the United Nations Conference on International Organization / San Francisco, June 16, 1945

– BBC / Interview for a television program on “Modern Greece” / October 23, 1964

– NBC / Interview on “Meet the Press” / broadcast over NBC Radio and Television Network / December 26, 1965

-CBS / Interview with C. A. Doxiadis broadcasted from the US Television in a program entitled “The 21st century” / December 1966

– NBC / “A Moment with Dr. Doxiadis” Interview on NBC Television (WRC Washington) (3/1/68)

In July 29, 1966, C. A. Doxiadis was rewarded the Aspen Award for the Humanities and in 1970 (March 20) the New York Times referred to him as one of the 100 most important people in the world.

Posthumously, his theory fell into oblivion as social modernism collapsed and visionary works on global urbanization retreated before the advance of Postmodernism. Today the same words may sound classic, nostalgic, or extremely contemporary.
