In thinking about urban design it's useful to go back to the 19605, to that period of modern architecture so unpopular today when the office block it- self was the symbol of a failure, failure both of architecture and of urbanism.
This was a failure of building scale and it was a failure in a more funda- mental sense I think to create buildings that made any contribution to the city and its possibilities of civilised life. Cities are mechanisms which reconcile private and public interests and in the 19605 we lost that recon- ciliation, and it's that idea, that ideal that we have to retrieve.
