| Suburbanization |
(“Overpopulation”, Urban planning)
Generic and uniform, the suburbs offered affordable living for the aspiring middle-class.
|Population growth in cities|
Suburbanization is a term to describe the growth and spatial reorganization of contemporary city. The growth out of the compact city is the result of the flow of population, dwelling places, and commercial and industrial activities to new low-density settlements. Suburbs rise out of the historically defined borders of the city, but they often functionally depend on city through commuting.
The suburbs are faced with social decay and gentrification.
