Architect. Milton Glass worked on the planned community of Kitimat, British Columbia.
Commissioned by Alcan (Aluminum Company of Canada), it was to be British Columbia's
first planned community: "Kitimat would be designed for the worker and his family.
The fulfillment of people's needs as the focus of a town plan was considered
revolutionary. Famed American architect and town planner Clarence S. Stein, and town
planners Mayer & Whittlesey of New York fulfilled Alcan's goals. A green space
model was chosen separating pedestrian and vehicular traffic and having home, store,
and community building face peaceful open spaces, removed from intrusion and hazard
by the automobile."
