    Although he passed his examinations and was preparing for admission to the bar, he decided instead to enter the Yale Divinity School. The beauty of a city depends, to a considerable degree, on the right arrangement and due multiplication of vacant spaces. Although obviously concerned with the secular world, he was instead a Congregational minister and theologian and a prolific author of works on religion. The Rev.

    It would be a matter of no small interest now to go over the plan of our own city, showing, in the light of the general principles here advanced, how many excellences it has that are continually regretted as irreparable defects, and how many supposed excellences that are really deformities. And as it can not be known, at the founding of a city, how large it is going to be, it would be well if a considerable section of ground were held in reserve, for a time, to be sold off finally, in part, if it shall appear that all of it will not be wanted. The center now will be the chief point of show or impression; for everything looks into it, and all the motion of the central crossings will be visible from the surrounding slopes, or summits. This article was most recently revised and updated by Amy TikkanenCorrections Manager.

    In such cases there should never be any attempt to force a line against nature; for a curvilinear street is always agreeable and graceful where there is a natural reason for it, which the eye will at once distinguish. Dr Munger's estimate was that "He was a theologian as Copernicus was an astronomer; he changed the point of view, and thus not only changed everything, but pointed the way toward unity in theological thought. All angles greater than about forty-five degrees, whether in grade or direction, have a mean look, and the wider the angle, the meaner the look; as if they were the notching of a surveyor's stations the work of a surveyor and not of an artist. The rectangular plan also furnishes most easily, and is well nigh indispensable to an elegant and attractive interior. It is not enough that there should be something informal, or irregular in the plan; that will not produce the historic air we speak of, when it still appears to be an irregularity originally planned.

In the nucleus or core, is the ancient town, the part that used to be contained within the walls. After attending St. Our engineers are trained for a very different kind of service, and are partly disqualified for this, by the habit of a study more strictly linear, more rigidly scientific, and less artistic.

The pioneer was left in the wilderness. The peoples of the old world have their cities built for times gone by, when railroads and gunpowder were unknown.

He was not exact, but he put God and humanity and the world into a relation that thought can accept while it goes on to state it more fully with ever growing knowledge. Though not a dramatic orator, he was original, thoughtful and impressive in the pulpit.

Horace Bushnell Quotes

And if the location is bad in many other respects, we have no reason to complain that trade drives the stake of location, saying "Here.

As a preacher, Dr Bushnell was very effective. The qualifications of surveyors are commonly more meagre still--many of them could not even draw a spiral, if it was wanted, and would for that reason if no other, march a line straight up a hill, even if it were impracticable.

The city, in short, will be most perfectly planned, other things being equal, when it makes a world for itself and reveals its ornaments most effectually to itself. Let me not be understood as deprecating, in this matter of location, Horace Bushnell book just, or even supreme reference to considerations of business.

Sometimes there will be round-sided hills in the background, rising, it may be, into rocky summits; such as would command a fine outlook over the city and harbor, if only the ascent could be made easy for the accommodation of residences. Rectangular blocks and structures have so great an advantage in this respect, that squares and parallelograms must and will predominate in all well planned cities.

One person to experience Bushnell's influence was Frederick Law Olmstedand in turn Bushnell's ideas on city planning may have been influenced by Olmsted.

Frankfort on the Maine is an illustration still more to the purpose. We have only to conceive such an arrangement, to convince ourselves, at once, of the painful vacuity and the insupportable weariness it will inflict.

Here too they can be more easily bridged, so as to offer no obstruction to the circulations of the streets. It was named Bushnell Park in his honor by that city.

In this point of view it is the worst planned city in the world; for, if it were to exist a thousand years, it would still wear the look of study and never the look of growth.

In a very large city there ought to be a few great arteries of motion where it may flow unobstructed from one side to the other; like the great central street of Antioch, for example, which was four miles long and some two hundred feet broad, flanked, on either side, by a lofty colonnade or arch work of stone, which covered the promenade walks from one end to the other.

No uniform grade should be forced in such cases by cutting and filling, but the surrender to nature should be gracefully made, by only so far tempering the inequalities, as to produce a moderately waving surface. Of a good city plan, that it shall always unite, if possible, something historical.

The defenses of the harbor-gate are easy, and yet no defenses can ever make the city secure, for the reason that an enemy has only to make his landing on the beach, two miles back of the town, and take it by an assault in the rear.
