The European elitism is a was a bit much for me to stomach too. I appreciated the comment about the fact that while it is beyond the power of architects or architecture to build community, that they can nevertheless create environments that are more or less conducive to it. This is certainly true, and committed communities must always either find or design places to live that will make a life together possible.

This film reeks of European elitism. Europe is a much more compact and dense environment and it utterly unlike the wide open spaces that America envelopes. Their solutions are not appropriate for us and they don't even understand that there is a difference.

They also fail to mention that one of the drivers of suburbanization is flight from crime.

Their point about segmented suburbanization is correct, but they fail to mention that it is caused by government zoning laws.
