Paper Title:
Thinking Caused by Rereading Howard's Garden Cities of Tomorrow after a Century
  Abstract

Howard's Garden Cities of Tomorrow is the first professional book of modern city plan in general, but there are many misunderstandings of the book and writer today. To be strict, Garden Cities of Tomorrow is not a book of city plan simply and Howard is not a traditional city planner. Although Howard's idea of “Sociable Cities” involves clear thinking of social reformism utopian, Garden Cities of Tomorrow is the most important and influential masterpiece in the history of city plan in the 20th century.
