UNITE'D FRONT We want to create family dwellings;

Without the social shortcomings.

The model seemed dark and dense;

More green and sun made sense.

A communal garden à la Notting Hill;

Will attract families straight in from Lille.

With problems in the UK and France caused by cultural segregation;

The model for this site should surely be that of social integration?

A complex matrix will be designed to allocate the apartments;

The variables of which some will be dictated by Argent.

Some would fault the pioneering masters, Jeanneret and Smithson;

We celebrate the 'Unite', but with hindsight let's get it right (on)!
