“Cities from all over the world are becoming visually similar, homogenized with similar building styles and highway systems. The commonality is development without creative thinking, and a universal goal of low costs and high profits. This kind of development increases the distance and disconnect between people. People move faster and faster as development grows faster and faster. Eventually, the question raised is whether development provides a better life for citizens, or if it only makes a country’s GDP look better.” – Lam Ho Tak
