Gutman, Margarita (2007). "The Power of Anticipation" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.

In this talk I will introduce the concept of the power of anticipation and explain its historical roots and its relevance to addressing problems we face in the contemporary world. I am an Argentine architect and urban historian researching for the last decade how people thought about the future in Buenos Aires at the beginning of the 20th century.
