An even greater Failure was Architectures inability to offer any way
to fix the problems rather than tear down peoples homes,,but they did
tear down those homes and never rebuilt them...There are ways to House
people which are not downsized McMansions or ticky tacky suburbs..I
believe the answers are in the Old Neighborhoods with the tenements
above the storefronts,,walkups of 3 stories..or more..we need the
exercise and walking up stairs is one of the best exercises...We need
to upgrade the Tenements with Superinsulation and passive Solar and
Photovoltaics and rainwater collection and Composting the Organic
wastes including Humanure,,the best of both worlds
