Good points, but we are still running against the age old problem of a designed environment vs a natural environment.

Perhaps an argument could be made that, this time, architects have finally gotten smart about the failures of designed spaces.

The classic critique being "Notes on a Synthesis of Form": https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0674627512/ref=oh_aui_deta...

I confess to not having fully read my copy of this book yet, so I cannot offer a rousing rebuttal to a 'better designed space'.
