Interesting article

This is largely how I thought the future would happen. As life progressed however I feel a certain sense of despair that this fine idea will not happen until after a global catastrophe, if at all. I am reasonably sure a lot of people would lvoe to live like this but no doubt there will always be those who seek to disrupt the social fabric. It doesn't appear that the architect has a formal connection to buddhist thought and yet his ideas resonate with it. Creating the conditions for harmonious living may seem naievely utopian, and perhaps it is impossible to achieve without a major paradigm shift in people's perspectives.

Pity.
