Quote of the day - on high rise living


In corporate centres and in central neighbourhoods for the rich and (largely) childless some great places can have, can even be defined by a profusion of Brobdingnagian scale and monumentality. But outside corporate centres, away from the nodes of wealth and high social capital we would have less confidence than them about making this equation balance. Most people, in most societies, most of the time would prefer to live in more modestly sized buildings and nearer the ground.

The rest of the article is pretty brilliant too.
