Indexing the World of Tomorrow - Shannon Mattern
"Yet both the urban plan and the filing plan were designed systems of systematic management. Both modeled aspirations for scientific rationality and technological progress. By molding the ash heap and a mountain of paperwork into rationally ordered — sculpted and color-coded — systems, the Fair demonstrated that architecture, urban design, engineering, product design, urban administration, and even filing were critical tools in modernist city-building."
