Better Way To Do Hi-Rise Apartments

One of the things I have against renting is feeling like many are nothing more then chicken coops warehousing people. Especially the hi-rises. This guy has some ideas which could change my entire outlook of them and make me want to live in one.

What follows is Moshe Safdie speaking about how to reinvent the apartment building at a 'TED' conference in Vancouver this past March."In 1967, Moshe Safdie reimagined the monolithic apartment building, creating “Habitat ’67,” which gave each unit an unprecedented sense of openness.

In this short talk, Safdie surveys a range of projects that do away with the high-rise and let light permeate into densely-packed cities."
