Kaplan discusses the relationships between buildings and their surrounding context, siting examples of good and bad zoning applications. He discusses the battle between the vehicle and pedestrians on roads and the implementation of green spaces along roadways, while discussing the question of values. He advocates contextualism, believing it is always appropriate to improve upon the context as it relates to the new building and access points. This can be noted in the alley system found in Santa Monica, California, which could serve as a pseudo-frontage, where the actual frontage is not available for use.
