In a world of growing and multiplying cities, suburbanization is the most visible and pervasive phenomenon. While the single-family home subdivisions of North America continue to proliferate, many other forms of suburbanization are now emerging around the globe. The highrise housing estates around many European and Canadian cities; the belts and wedges of squatter settlements in the global south; the burgeoning megacity peripheries between Istanbul and Shanghai; and the technopoles and edge cities in different corners of the world--all are a part of a pervasive trend toward global suburbanism. Suburban Constellations provides a first account of this global development. Twenty-two of the most well-known global urban scholars analyze the multiple manifestations of suburbanization, alongside artistic and illustrative contributions. Overviews of suburban trends in the Americas, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia complete this ambitious volume.
