In this meaning the essay discusses if the proposals are realistic or utopian.
These will open two lines of investigation to be developed through the case studies: Past, present and future. It is only through the materialization of this Social City ideal–and not through the creation of a single, disconnected Garden City–that the urban planning model would reach its full, and desired, salutary potential. In conclusion, the Garden City model has proven to be flexible enough to adapt to a wide range of local determinants, although it is in retaining the essential elements in the original scheme as a whole that the true success of the model resides.
American architects and partners, Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin  were proponents of the movement and after their arrival in Australia to design the national capital Canberra, they produced a number of Garden Suburb estates, most notably at Eaglemont with the Glenard and Mount Eagle Estates and the Ranelagh and Milleara Estates in Victoria.
To develop this thesis, the essential elements and the theory behind the original British model are used as a basis for a comparative case study that focuses on the translation of Howard’s urban scheme to the United States and Argentina: In “Houses that grow.
When considering the issue of the strong government-policy applied at Greenbelt, versus the real-estate operation behind El Palomar, similarities and differences arise.
In Brussels, Antwerp and Ghent new extensions of the city were build. The Garden Suburb and the Modern City. In the present research project, these elements are mentioned as a mean to clarify the relevance of said elements in the success of the working model represented by Letchworth.

All in all, the experience of Letchworth is to be taken as a lesson where every principle of town construction as envisioned by Ebenezer Howard was put in practice.

It permitted parts of the idea to take root in widely different economic, institutional, cultural, and aesthetic values.
At the heart of this richly illustrated book is an encounter with the explosive ideas of the situationists. Through a simple superposition, it is clear how the xiudad of the original scheme was broken early.
Greenbelt and El Palomar, both in terms of the essential elements embedded in the original model and how those elements have been reinterpreted and applied in the local translation, have proven to be “impure” in terms of achieving the ideal behind the Howardian model in its entirety.

The inventor proceeds by first conceiving an idea of a possible new product or instrument, next by evolving a design on paper with patient thought for the adaptation of the structure to the conditions it has to fulfill, and finally by experimentation with models to test the design 36 practice.
