WOW. A bunch of things:
1. Joseph Smith imagined pocket neighborhoods in the 19th century, and Mormons have been building around communities ever since. I wonder how much of the Mormon story - both their successes and their culty vibe - are due to their communal orientation? Probably a nontrivial amount.
2. 200 sqft apartments with furniture that rearranges itself is absolutely brilliant. Everyone should have Murphy beds, and as much space as possible should be common areas, and closets/storage could be hidden away. Love it.
3. Large developments are unpopular with powerful stakeholders, apparently. I wonder why the conservationist movement took such issue with this one?
