very interesting response. Although my point was somewhat different and only structural, not as political. When i talked about my experience in a developing country it did not mean that i was poor (even though that seems to be the automatic preconception). I grew up in beautiful spaces that were not restricted by harsh building codes, and i believe that it only added to the architecture. For example, a spiral staircase is much more sculptural and effective that a staircase beclouded by min and max run and treads, and handrails that restrict more than they protect. I am talking about the effect of a free space, not of one that is the response of lack of money or building materials.
