.. from the human body to the perfect city to the perfect other world ..

In the utopias we have studied …

How do the perfect body and the perfect architecture shape the perfect individual, the perfect citizen and the perfect society?
Which utopias are focused on physical perfection and why?
Are imagined systems of property designed for material/bodily perfection rather than spiritual enrichment?
Are architectural forms EITHER an extension to the human body, OR a necessary constraint (a physical expression of law) given the impossible fluidity of the human?
