good idea to plan for a range of housing types across all incomes and ages, in all parts of the city centre and in suburbs. Homogenous neighbourhoods tend to work only for the very wealthy and stable.

Perhaps the greatest lesson from the changing fortunes of Trellick Tower and St. James Town is that no part of the city and no kind of architecture should be seen as finite, when the possibilities of social change are infinite. Architects, planners, building managers, and social service providers all play a part in providing social infrastructure. Together with the people who live and work in tall buildings, ideas and imaginations can be pooled to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.
