Year:1967
The ”Flatwriter” was a computer program conceived to enable the user to design the plan of his future home (self-planning) in the Ville Spatiale, or for a citizen to re-design his neighborhood in the Ville Spatiale.
(The title should be taken literally; the ”Flatwriter’ was meant to design apartments.)
Friedman gave a detailed description of all the necessary steps to complete the design. In 1973 software was developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) at Cambridge USA, named YONA

Friedman never lost touch with the idea he conceived in 1967. This model was made in 2002 to show the possible outcome of the use of the ”Flatwriter” by future inhabitants. It shows what the space-frame of the Ville Spatiale could look like.
