What could it mean at district scale?
Grid, Non-Grid
Dan Hill

This whole section, especially in light of the ‘how little could we build?’ question makes me think that (as people like Frank Duffy have pointed out) that the problem is really the supply chain. It gets paid to make buildings. It doesn’t get paid to create value-creating districts — of which putting up buildings is just one tool to achieve. You see a handful of smart developers out there reaching for this (Jonathan Rose in the US is a good example) but I think you are clearly making a case throughout that services and quality of life are where the long-term, sustainable value is, not capital assets.
