Architecture observed

I have virtually no academic knowledge of architecture.  So I was fascinated by a TED talk that I heard on the plane en route to Cyprus.
It was by Moshe Safdie... passionate about urban planning that allows for light and space to penetrate apartment buildings, and how to make cities more permeable. His ideas were put forward at Habitat 67.
I gather that he has supporters and detractors but for lay people like me, I recommend the talk.

Walking around the waterfront of Limassol yesterday I was reminded of his passion for buildings that allow for passages of light and life to permeate them.
