The author reflects on the notion that build communities not just buildings and places. He argues that to achieve community, people had to live close to each other and that town houses were a good way to reach higher density. He points out that it would be foolish to suggest that without a plaza there is not community. He suggests that planners, financiers, and developers should include the concept of community in their plans and designs.
