A lot of these photos show suburbs that while they may be denser than North American ones, still don't look all that appealing. The houses are behind huge fences or shrubs, and even the tower block suburbs look like they are cut off from the surroundings. I don't think people take strolls in these suburbs or walk to a cafe, etc. It looks all very segregated by land use, just like American suburbs, but just denser.

I think the whole world has lost its ability to built truely nice interconnected neighbourhoods

A side from better transit connections, these suburbs look just as isolating as American or Canadian suburbs. And in some ways maybe even more withe lack of front porches, the fences, etc.
