Condo life according to The Walrus

The Walrus, a much loved Canadian magazine, features short films on its website.  The following episode is about the culture of condo life in Toronto.  The author argues that condo living is a somewhat antisocial mode of existence for its inhabitants.  I’m not sure how applicable this argument would be to city like Vancouver, which seems to be a little bit better at integrating land uses (and hence at providing for a greater array of interactions that you might have in and around your neighbourhood).  This t.v. episode reminds us, even in little Geneva, that bracketing land uses into mono-culture environments (e.g. businesses in one part of town and houses in another) is not fun no matter where you live.  Anyway.  Enjoy!
