此外，他将年老一代称为社会负担，并指出，老龄化对社会不利，因而不能适当发展（Koolhaas et al。，2000）。但是，他没有分析这一代人带来的经验，勤奋和忠诚，这在当时的年轻一代中是不存在的，所以老年人的发展更好。
Furthermore, he labelled the aging generation as a burden on the society and stated that the aging generation was not positive to the society due to which proper development could not take place (Koolhaas et al., 2000). However, he failed to analyse that this generation brought about experience, hard work and loyalty which was not present amongst the younger generation of that time and so development took place in a better manner under the older people.
Additionally, he stated that the modern alchemists had completely failed to fulfil their promise of bringing quality along with quantity. He argued that there was a lot of development taking place all over the world but it did not specify quality at all. The architects had completely failed to establish good structure and aesthetics due to which there is no charm to the urban design. The buildings and structures are established all over the world but there is no charm to it.
He stated that there were a lot of buildings all over and urbanization was taking place at a positive rate but the buildings were not impressive, they failed to have ‘magic’ in them due to which it was not up to the mark and defied the promise that was made by the alchemists. The urbanization projects were taking place at a large number, however, these projects had no charm and the idea was a complete failure.
Furthermore, he argued that the government played no significant role in the development and just went with the flow of the architects and had the government paid proper attention so the development would have taken place in the best possible manner. To Koolhaas, development meant nothing until and unless the quantity was backed by quality and anything that was easier on the eyes was much better than anything that was in bulk.
