Vassilis Tsitsopoulos's rating of the film The Human Scale

Why did this film look like an ad for a private architecture firm? It felt vaguely insulting to watch Western "experts" selling to the Third World a band-aid solution to the social and environmental problems other Western "experts" created there. The insights about urban sociability these architects got so belatedly used to be the norm in most of the world before Western-style "development" and the World Bank.
