Try this with a strait rule


Hi
This time I must agrea, that my true oppinion about old houses, is that they shuld be renovated or replaced with better ones.
I grew up in 1690' houses when they still in copenhagen, was part of the slums. Sure it was a beautifull inviroment, but englishmen must have been thost that made the outdoor drainage, and the two toilets for 20 families wasn't as cosy as they claim. Blessed the Social democrates the last remains was torn in the 60' , even simular houses today cost a farm, that's with central heating, and compleatly rebuild.
Don't start using brick again, houses don't last forever and with computers you can acturly build at a third, and surely four times stronger. --------- My father was caretaker and had two rifels and a gun taken from a geatapo officer ,to puncture dows eggs , so the intire roof drainage wouldn't be filled with dirt ; where in modern urban slumm would you se this working today. Don't tell me about old slums now you are warned ;))
Hate it and bless the rigid social democrates for doing an end to it, they also builded nice housing in copenhagen you se, Dronningengården for instance, replaced some of the vorse slums in north europ , I counted 7 backyards, as small boy, after the houses was torn down and only the ruins was left, wonderfull playground btw.
What is asked is new jobs and new tech. Jobs come automatic and the technology behind methods as 3D-H was here when architecst fiddled with emty meshwork.
