    This was super interesting! I like the connected greenspace approach with multiple buildings with different amenities instead of all buildings just having the same micro gym/kitchen/micro greenspace idea.

    Single staircase designs, too.

    Personally I tend to be hesitant on relaxing the duel means of egres rule completely when i’ve seen buildings in Vancouver use two sets of stairs interwoven in the same stairwell to achieve the same effect with only a 30% or so increase in floor space. Even if it’s statistically not much help knowing there are two ways out of the building in an emergency does have an advantage, and i’m not convinced that it’s actually as much of a factor into the proliferation of double stacked corridors as them just being the cheapest way build.

    Otherwise i’m definitely a big fan of the suggestions, especially more interconnections between buildings.

    Saw this vid earlier today! It’s like an extension of that earlier one that also touched on the dual stairwell issue (though I believe the containing video was about something else). But yeah, it’d be nice to see more nuanced conversation about these topics in more places.

    Building codes are written in the blood of the victims.
