Vinex or new neighbourhoods

The artist Marjoleijn den Boer gets inspired by the coolness and equal looking of new house projects in The Netherlands for her photographs and paintings. (The first 3 photographs are Den Boer's marjoleindenboer.nl).
I think that the very specific Dutch look of what is being called Vinex hoods it is not so unique as you can see in the photos of the low budget new houses in Mexico can be as inspiring. (The last two photographs). Maybe it is time to search for this kind of new planning 'hoods around the globe.
