To have the state support the poor or not is an argument that has been going on for decades. To do so or not to do so is considered a legitimate argument and it still being debated today.

The age of the argument certainly doesn't give it legitimacy. Compassion and assistance for less fortunate citizens of your country isn't something that a majority of people would argue against, but to each his own selfishness.

I like the New-York housing blocks because of the bricks. the most towerblocks are concrete and that is much uglier.

You mean the brown ones

NY has the most known of this type but there are several cities in the East Coast with similar types though not as big as the NY ones.

It's all in the composition and detailing.

Kazuyo Sejima designed the Gifu Kitagata public housing in Gifu. It's in concrete with metal mesh (I personally dislike the mesh idea) and external stairs. Looks quite nice, though it's a bit "cold" on the facade with staircases.

That looks really nice unlike the typical "danchis" of Japan. And living conditions there are much better compared to those of Europe/US

Ok, here's a sample of Singaporean Public Housing.

Due to our limited area, most of Singaporeans (around 80%) live in govt-build flats, rest in either high-rise private condominiums or (the well-heeled ones) landed bungalows.

Currently, New Towns and smaller Estates, are well-equipped in shopping malls, food centers, transportation (more and more extensively - rail transit), schools, parks and communal facilities.

Simei Estate:






Simei Community Center, all towns got it, it contains sporting facilities, administration, etc. Larger towns have few of them, each serving a specific division of a town.



Pasir Ris New Town:





NOTICE: THE PICTURES FROM NOW ONWARDS ARE TAKEN FROM WIKIPEDIA.

Bishan New Town:



Punggol New Town:



Woodlands New Town:



Telok Blangah Estate, an example of old public housing in Singapore:



Bukit Merah Estate:
