American Dream 2.0: Visionary Video of Associative Design

People used to dream of moving out of the city into single-family homes with white picket fences. More and more, however, the call for sustainability and an increased interest in urban living has brought people back into cities. From luxury condos to refitted warehouse lofts, residential living in urban areas is on the rise.
