Friedman was interviewed on Smart City Radio:
"For example, homebuilders can leave sections of finished homes without partitions. This lowers the purchasing price and allows buyers flexibility to expand their living space when they can afford it and when they need it."

"We've become very efficient at building developments - subdivisions - but we failed to know how to build communities," said Friedman."
