Dense thought

First Nick Raynsford, then John Prescott: we must return to the days of terraced housing they say, and quite right too. The gloomy-tune opponents say this means on-street parking, but so what? And relatively small gardens (ditto). When will these people wake up to the fact that this is what most people like and buy, not the low-grade trash produced by much of the so-called volume-building sector. But where are the models for Belgravia or Islington-style terraces? Few architects have tried to produce this model of housing, but the government could do with reviewing what has been designed. In particular Bryan Avery should be asked to dust off the project he proposed for the Royal Docks a few years back, complete with linear-motor lifts, which produced delightful designs at high density. How about a design guide on this subject?
