especially your own experience with their work.Do you think
it is only another kind of Utopia or tourism toy?

Actually, I am not responding directly to the query. I am
actually thinking more about the possibility of applying the
principles of New Urbanism to a high-rise, high-density
urban environment like Hong Kong.

I am focusing on this topic for my Urban Design dissertation
in the University of Hong Kong Faculty of Architecture. If
there is anyone out there with some opinions on the subject,
and some leads (like examples of high-rise New Urbanism) I
hope they can send it to me. I'll be very grateful for it!
