"The Experimental City" is a documentary about the Minnesota Experimental City project, a futuristic attempt to solve urban problems by creating a full-size city from scratch in the isolated woods of northern Minnesota.  At the heart of the story is renowned scientist, inventor and comic-strip author Athelstan Spilhaus, who dreams of a new kind of planned city -- a truly experimental city that continuously changes to find workable urban solutions.  This new city would employ the newest technologies in communications, transport, pollution control, energy supply -- even large-scale domed enclosure -- in an attempt to create more livable cities for the 21st Century.
