I am impressed by his house and studio and the institute but not by the housing. There is no green. I see children on concrete without a blade of grass or a tree close around them. People, whether they understand it or not, need green spaces. Sad.

The US is fixated with mowed lawns - it is the substitute for good city planning - real cities have little grass but good civic amenities including well designed parks. Low cost housing and functional cities do not mix well with ubiquitous, high-maintenance landscaping - that is the stuff of auto-dominated suburbs.
